With two of the closest aides of convicted Dera Sacha Sauda Chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim still absconding, Haryana police have released a list of 43 'most wanted' in the Panchkula violence, that led to the death of 35 people.

Dera Chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim's adopted daughter and closest aide Honeypreet, who had accompanied him to the Special CBI Court on August 25, tops the list, followed by Rahim's spokesperson Aditya Insaan who has been booked for sedition and inciting violence on the day of the verdict. Both of them are absconding.

"These are the people we have identified on the basis of the videography done on the day of the verdict who were seen causing violence. We are in the process of identifying more persons on the basis of photos and footage available," DCP Panchkula Manbir Singh told DNA, adding that a WhatsApp number has been released for any information related to the accused and the information of the person would be kept confidential.

The accused are seen hurling stones and holding wooden sticks, with some of them talking on cell phones in the pictures uploaded in the website of the Haryana Police. "Some of them were involved in arranging the inflammable material which they used to torch the vehicles. They were in contact with each other, while the verdict was awaited," said police.

One of the accused, Parkash, who is brother-in-law of Aditya Insaan, has also been arrested from Mohali. The police have also arrested local Dera members who were in contact with Aditya on August 25 and were involved in planning the violence. As many as 35 people had died as the mob went on rampage, torching vehicles and damaging property in Panchkula.

Dismissing statements that Honeypreet has escaped to Nepal, DGP BS Sandhu said, "There is no evidence that Honeypreet has escaped to Nepal. These are just speculations. We have sent teams to various states including Rajasthan and search is on to trace her and Aditya Insan. Dera Manager Vipasna has also joined the investigation and she would be called for questioning again."
