Haryana Police has found evidence of Honeypreet Insan's hand in incidents of violence in Panchkula following Dera Sacha Sauda chief's conviction in a rape case on August 25, Panchkula Police Commissioner A S Chawla claimed today.

Chawla also said that 36-year-old Honeypreet, who claims to be the adopted daughter of jailed sect chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, was misleading and not cooperating with the police during her interrogation.

Honeypreet, whose real name is Priyanka Taneja, was arrested by the Haryana Police on October 3 in connection with the deadly violence that had claimed 35 lives.

Asking if Honeypreet's hand in incidents of violence has come to light, Chawla today told reporters, "according to the evidence we have gathered so far, definitely she has hand in this".

The police will put the evidence and other other facts before the court, he said without elaborating.
