- 63. Hari Prasad Poudel (alias Tate)
- On December 11, 2001 (Mangshir 26, 2058), RNA troops arrested twenty-six-year-old Hari Prasad Poudel, together with another CPN-M member, when he was traveling on a bus from Pokhara town to his home village in Kaskikot VDC, Kaski district.
- A relative of Poudel was also arrested the same day from a local school where he teaches, and spent three days in detention at an army barracks around Pokhara, most likely the Fulbari army barracks, with Poudel and the other CPN-M member (who was later released). After three days, the relative was transferred to the Kaski district police headquarters, and released from there three days later, but was required to report to the police every fifteen days. Since then, the family has had no contact with Poudel. A released detainee told them he had seen Poudel at the Fulbari army barracks during January-February, 2002 (Margh 2058). The family has heard rumors that Poudel was later killed during a staged "encounter," but has been unable to confirm this rumor.
- Poudel was a Kaski district committee member of the Maoist-affiliated All-Nepal Free Students’ Union (Revolutionary). Because of Poudel’s known status as a Maoist symphatizer, the family was too afraid to approach the RNA or CDO for information. The "disappearance" was reported to INSEC and the ICRC.60
