- On August 11, 2002 (Shrawan 26, 2059), at around 9 p.m., a large group of RNA troops arrived at the village of Sonpur in Magragadi VDC-5. They searched several houses and took away forty-eight-year-old farmer Jangu Tharu, thirty-one-year-old farmer Ram Bharose Tharu, thirty-four-year-old farmer Jagana Tharu, and thirty-six-year-old farmer Jagat Ram Tharu. The soldiers had a list with them and called each of the detainees out by name during the arrest. In each house the soldiers held the families at gunpoint to prevent them from following their arrested relatives.
- Villagers saw the soldiers taking the detainees to a van parked on the edge of the village, and an hour later they heard two long rounds of gunshots from the same location. After the vehicle had left, the villagers came to the spot, but did not find anything there.
