- On January 1, 2002 (Poush 17, 2058), RNA soldiers arrested nineteen-year-old Rita Nepali and a male unidentified CPN-M member from Pumdi Bumdi VDC of Kaski district. Over the next few days, Nepali was taken several times to her home by RNA soldiers, who searched the home and questioned the family about Maoist activities in the area. The soldiers who came to Nepali's family home gave her relatives the phone number of Fulbari army barracks, where Nepali was being detained at the time, and ordered the family to contact them if any Maoists came to the home. After three RNA visits with Nepali to the family home shortly after the arrest, the family never heard again from Nepali.
- Rita Nepali had joined CPN-M about one year prior to her arrest and was underground at the time of her arrest. Because the arrest took place during the state of emergency, the family was too afraid to leave their village and report the "disappearance." The case was later reported to INSEC, who informed the ICRC and NHRC of the "disappearance," but there has been no further information.59
