Panchkula police commissioner A S Chawla on Tuesday ruled out the possibility of Honeypreet Insan, who is the most wanted accused in the cases of sedition and violence by Dera Sacha Sauda followers, being in Nepal.
Chawla said police parties were quite close to arresting dera spokesperson Dr Aditya Insan and Honeypreet .
He also said two more lists of dera followers, who had actively participated in the violence at the Hafed light point of Panchkula on August 25, were being prepared.
Chawla also informed about adding Honeypreet’s name to the sedition case registered at Panchkula’s Sector 5 police station.
He said Honeypreet’s name cropped up following the interrogation of two other accused arrested in the case.
Among those arrested in the sedition case included Surender Insan, Chamkaur Singh, Daan Singh, Govind Singh and Dilawar Insan.
Meanwhile, the Panchkula chief judicial magistrate (CJM) on Tuesday remanded Daan Singh, the legal adviser of dera, and Chamkaur Singh, the Panchkula district head of dera’s committee, to judicial custody.
Officials said the special investigation team (SIT), probing the cases, had found Rs 25lakh from Chamkaur and some money from other accused as well. Chamkaur had got the money from the dera.
