Panchkula Police said Thursday that Honeypreet Insan was not cooperating with their investigation into the violence that broke out after the conviction of now-disgraced Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Singh. 

Honeypreet is accused of having instigated the violence. 

The Panchkula police commissioner added that should the state of affairs continue, they would ask the court to extend Honeypreet's remand.

The court had on Wednesday remanded Honeypreet in police custody for six days. 




The commissioner added that they were interrogating one other person.

Police said he had told them about Honeypreet's whereabouts during the period she was absconding. 

The violence that Honeypreet is accused of instigating had broken out in Panchkula, a suburb of Chandigarh, on August 25 after Gurmeet Singh was convicted of having raped two of his female followers back in 2002. 

More than 35 people died in the violence

Honeypreet had been absconding since August 25. She was arrested on Tuesday.
