- On April 23, 2002 (Baishak 10, 2059), the Maoist-affiliated All-Nepal Free Students' Union (Revolutionary) held a meeting in Motipur VDC, Bardia district. An APF unit at Thappua Bridge detained two members of the group after the meeting, as they were returning to their village: twenty-seven-year-old Krishna Prasad Tharu, and Janaki Chowdhury (age unknown), who was a central committee member of the All-Nepal Free Students' Union (Revolutionary). Both remain missing to date.
- A released detainee informed Tharu's family that he had been in detention with Tharu at the Chisapani army barracks. Thereafter, the relatives went repeatedly to the Chisapani army barracks to obtain information, but the soldiers denied any knowledge. The case was reported to the ICRC and local human rights organizations.150
