Chandigarh: A Panchkula court has issued an arrest warrant against Dera Sacha Sauda chairperson Vipassana Insan more than four months after bloody unrest over the rape conviction of the sect’s leader Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.

According to a report in The Tribune, a Special Investigation Team from Haryana conducted two raids recently to arrest Vipassana, but investigators said that she had gone into hiding.

The SIT had questioned Vipassana in September last year over the violence in Panchkula and Sirsa, which left 41 people, mostly followers of the sect, dead.

Thousands of followers of Gurmeet Rahim Rahim indulged in large scale violence in Panchkula following his conviction for the rape of two female disciples. Close aides of the sect chief like Honeypreet, Aditya Insan and Pawan Insan were then booked by the police for sedition and instigating the mobs.

While Honeypreet was arrested in early October, after remaining fugitive for 38 days, Pawan Insan remained elusive for 85 days. Aditya Insan, a doctor, continues to be on the run.
