- 100. Gita Kumari Chowdhury
- Twenty-six-year-old Gita Kumari Chowdhury was an area member of CPN-M. On September 4, 2002 (Bhadra 19, 2059) she was detained by RNA soldiers from the Chisapani army barracks at Damauli town in Motipur VDC. A relative was with Gita Kumar Chowdhury at the time of her arrest, and saw the soldiers detain her and take her away.
- After her arrest, the family informed local human rights organizations and the ICRC in Nepalgunj. They filed a habeas corpus petition in the Supreme Court, but the petition was dismissed. During the Tihar festival in October 25-27, 2003 (Kartik 8 to 10, 2060), a soldier serving at the Chisapani army barracks, home to visit his family, told Gita Kumar's family that she was being held at the Chisapani army barracks. The family was unable to confirm this, and has received no other information about the whereabouts of Gita Kumar.96
