- On April 20, 2002 (Baishak 7, 2059), fifteen-year-old student Tej Man Chowdhury, along with several other students, was on his way home from Satbaria VDC, where he was attending a Maoist program. A group of RNA soldiers was waiting on the road and started shooting at the group of approaching students. They wounded Chowdhury in the collar-bone area and detained him, while the others ran away. He has not been seen since then.
- A local NGO inquired at the Ghorahi barracks on the family's behalf, but the army denied having Tej Man in detention. The NGO also reported the case to INSEC and NHRC, but the family has not received any information on Chowdhury's whereabouts.78
