- Just after noon on May 31, 2002 (Jestha 17, 2059), a group of uniformed RNA soldiers arrested thirty-four-year-old Resham Gharti, a farmer, from his home in Bijauri VDC, Dang district. Gharti had just finished his lunch, and was carrying 3,000 rupees (about U.S.$42) to buy an ox in town when soldiers arrested him near his house. His wife managed to get the money back after some efforts; however the soldiers kept Gharti in detention, taking him away in a blue van that had been parked on a nearby road.
- Gharti reportedly was not involved in CPN-M activities and worked as a laborer in India for most of the year, returning home only during the farming season. The family was too afraid to approach the army barracks for information, because other villagers told them they might be killed if they went to ask questions. They did inform INSEC and the ICRC, but have received no information about the whereabouts of Gharti.75
