- On 21 Shrawan 2059, twenty-one-year-old Sita Ram Tharu, a farmer, left his village home in Boding Basti, Naubasta VDC-8, Banke district, to buy rice in the district capital of Kohalpur. He never returned home. The next day, the family was informed by other villagers that he had been arrested by RNA soldiers on his way back. According to the family, Sita Ram Tharu had no affiliation to CPN-M, but had the same name as another man from the same village who was a known Maoist.
- The family tried to locate Sita Ram Tharu without success. They gave money to a corrupt local official who promised to help them, but received no information. At Chisapani barracks, the soldiers said they had not arrested him, and told the relative to go away. The case was reported to local human rights organizations, which passed on the case information to NHRC and ICRC.183
