Information regarding alleged incident | घटेको भनिएको घटनासम्बन्धी जानकारी
- In October-November, 1997 (Kartik 2054), twenty-year-old Lila Khannal, who had joined a low-level CPN-M cadre about a year before, was detained following a shoot-out with Nepali security forces in a shop in Deuthapani VDC of Lamjung District.
- Witnesses to the incident told her relatives that one Maoist had been killed during the incident, but that Khannal and another Maoist had been detained and taken away unharmed by the security forces. Upon learning of the detention, the family went to the CDO's office and the District police office in Gorkha, but was not given any information. The relatives also went to see police officials in Deuthapnani VDC and in Lamjung's district headquarters, but the police refused to acknowledge that Khannal had been detained.
- Afraid for their own security, the family did not file applications with government officials or the ICRC. The family has not heard any information about the fate of Khannal since her arrest.36
