Nepal's Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) has denied reports of Honeypreet Insan, adopted daughter of convicted Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, being in their country.

Pushkar Karki, CIB Director of Nepal Police, told ANI, "Until now, we have verified that she is not in Nepal and we haven't had any further information."

"Some people said she was sighted in Biratnagar, some said in western part of Nepal, while others said she was seen in Kathmandu also. We confirmed this information with Nepal Police and after the search we share that the information was wrong," he added

The CIB Director further said that crackdown process will be pursued if any concrete information is received in future.

The Haryana Police on September 18 released a 'wanted list' of 43 people, over violence lashed after conviction of the Dera chief in two rape cases. The list had Honeypreet Insan, on top list.

She has been missing since the day the Dera chief was sent to Rohtak Jail.

Haryana witnessed uproar by Dera Sacha Sauda followers after Ram Rahim was convicted in the rape cases by the special CBI court on August 25, leaving about 41 people dead and injuring more than 250 people.
