Information regarding alleged incident | घटेको भनिएको घटनासम्बन्धी जानकारी
- Twenty-six-year-old Juna Dhakal was the wife of Hari Adhikal, a Maoist commander in Gorkha district. After her marriage, she also joined CPN-M. A month after joining the Maoists, in February-March 2003 (Falgun 2059), Dhakal and another female Maoist were wounded during a gunfire exchange with Nepali security forces at Tandi village in Chitwan district, but local villagers told the family that the two women were taken away alive by the security forces.
- Relatives went to enquire about Dhakal at a nearby police post and at the Bharatpur army barracks in Chitwan district, but the security forces denied any knowledge of the incident. Afraid to ask more questions about the fate of a known Maoist, the family abandoned their search, reporting the case to local human rights activists, but too afraid to go to the ICRC and NHRC to seek assistance.45
