On December 17, 2001 (Poush 2, 2058), one month after the end the first ceasfire period, RNA soldiers captured the two men while they were sleeping at the home of a villager in Sohanpur village, Sundevri VDC, Dang district.

- Nirmal Raut's wife, seventeen-year-old Roshani Raut, was detained by Nepali security forces in an area police post in Rajpur VDC, Dang district on January 2, 2002 (Poush 18, 2058). Roshani Raut had joined CPN-M following her marriage to Nirmal Raut, and had become an underground activist.
- A relative was able to meet with Roshani Raut at Tulsipur prison on May 20, 2002 (Jeshta 6, 2059), and gave her some food and clothes. When the relative returned the next week to see Roshani Raut again, she was told Roshani was no longer there and had been "released." However, Roshani never came home, and never sent word to her family. Her relatives believe that Roshani was transferred back to RNA detention, and "disappeared" in RNA custody. According to a relative, "if Roshani was released, she would definitely come home."87
