Honeypreet Insan, Ram Rahim's constant companion who calls herself his adopted daughter and "Papa's Angel", has been missing since Gurmeet Ram Rahim went to jail.
Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's closest aides Honeypreet Insan and Aditya Insan top the list of the 43 most-wanted in Haryana over the rioting last month after the self-declared spiritual guru was convicted of rape.
Arson and violence by supporters of Ram Rahim's Dera Sacha Sauda sect left 38 people dead on August 25, after a court in Panchkula held the guru guilty of raping two followers inside his sprawling and shadowy base in Haryana's Sirsa. The flamboyant Dera chief is serving a 20-year jail term.
Honeypreet Insan, Ram Rahim's constant companion who calls herself his adopted daughter and "Papa's Angel", has been missing since that day. She had accompanied him on a special chopper that took him from Panchkula to the Rohtak jail. The police say she tried to help him escape after his conviction. Hunting for her, the police have also sent teams to the border; they suspect she may try to escape to Nepal. The police have reportedly circulated photographs and asked its teams to watch out for women "wearing a burqa or mask".
There have been more arrests of Ram Rahim's aides and the Haryana police has now put out the photos of followers who are missing.
"Following accused are wanted regarding violence in Panchkula...The identity of those giving information leading to their arrest will be kept secret," the notice said, releasing phone numbers, WhatsApp details and an email id for the information.
Most of the accused have been identified from photographs and videos taken during the violence. They are seen carrying weapons like sticks and some are masked.
Aditya Insan, the Dera spokesperson, is wanted for sedition.
Pradeep Goyal Insan, also a Dera functionary, and Aditya Insan's relative Prakash were arrested earlier. Based on their statements, the police may add more charges against Honeypreet Insan.
