Their personal properties will also be attached...These persons are Aditya Insan, Pawan Insan and Honeypreet Insan," Haryana DGP B S Sandhu said while talking to reporters in Sirsa today.
I want to warn them that they should appear before police and present their side to the investigators, he said.
The DGP said that efforts were being made to nab Honeypreet and the other two in connection with the violence that had erupted following the conviction of Ram Rahim in a rape case.
For this, an international alert has been issued and teams are conducting raids, he said.
