- Twenty-four-year-old Karan Singh Pun, a student, was arrested by two Criminal Investigation Department (CID) police officials at 4 p.m. on September 5, 1998 (Bhadra 20, 2055), from the house of a neighbor in Masurikhet village, Kohalpur VDC-4, Banke.
- His relatives went to the CDO and the Kolahpur police station, but authorities claimed they had no information about his detention. The case was reported to the ICRC and local human rights organizations.
- The family is unaware of any CPN-M involvement by Karan Singh, but suspects he was detained because the family had moved to Kohalpur-VDC from Rukum, a district which is a CPN-M stronghold. A sister of Karan Singh, Dayamanti Pun, was an active Maoist who also "disappeared" in February, 2002 (Falgun 2058).199
