"We are probing her links to the August 25 violence".

It has been reported that all those who helped Honeypreet Insan and provided her shelter during this period, shall also be probed.

While it is also suspected that Honeypreet and Aditya Insan may be helping Ram Rahim reach out to his followers through social media, the jail officials have denied this possibility.

During the interview, she was continuously claiming that her relationship is as pure with her father Ram Rahim as any other father-daughter relation could be.

"Have you heard me saying a word where I instigate people?" She will be produced before a court on Wednesday said Panchkula DCP Manbir Singh. After Dera chief's conviction that day, she also accompanied him in a chopper when he was flown to Rohtak jail.

However, Honeypreet Insan has finally been traced. In the interview, she claimed that she and her father Ram Rahim are innocent and they both have full faith in the law of the country.

The Punjab government would not try to protect Honeypreet, who has cases registered against her in Haryana, where she has been declared a "wanted criminal", the spokesperson asserted.

"Try to understand my condition. The court permitted me to be with papa", she said.

"I was not even knowing what legal process means".

"Was I present with the arsonists?"

A heavy contingent of police waited at a court in Haryana today amid reports that the 36-year-old Ram Rahim aide would surrender after being hunted by the police for weeks. "Now, I will go to the Punjab and Haryana High Court", is all she said. However, she didn't disclose her location where she has been hiding for more than a month. I had gone there [the CBI court in Panchkula] in the hope that my father will return by the evening. "We are confident that we will get justice". "I am psychological tarnish with such allegations that we (Honeypreet and Guru Ram Rahim) had illicit relations". What proof do these people have to level such allegations? "All those who are spreading such rumours, please do not believe them". She said she will seek legal advice on whether she should surrender. "I did not want to be an actor". Time will come when facts would be come on surface.

Haryana Police searched a house in Delhi's Greater Kailash 2 area for Honeypreet Insan.

Honeypreet, along with another woman, was arrested from Zirakpur-Patiala road in Punjab, says Panchkula Police commissioner Chawla.

Honeypreet, had earlier been booked at Sector 5 police station in Panchkula. The scene of her arrest is about 15-18 kms from both Chandigarh and Panchkula.

Honeypreet, whose real name is Priyanka Taneja, was an important part of the flashy and outrageous lifestyle that Ram Rahim enjoyed until he was jailed in August.

She will face charges of sedition, thought to have made speeches inciting the riots following Baba Ram Rahim Singh's conviction.
