- 187. Karna Bahadur Chowdhury
- Karna Bahadur Chowdhury (age unknown), an unskilled laborer who had no links to CPN-M, was walking around Baniyabar Market with two village friends when he was arrested by uniformed RNA soldiers at about 4 p.m. on August 14, 2002 (Shrawan 29, 2059). According to his two friends, the soldiers simply stopped Karna Bahadur, blindfolded him, and took him with them in a convoy of two army trucks, not even asking for his name.
- The family immediately went to Chisapani army barracks, but the soldiers there denied any knowledge of the arrest. However, a released detainee later came to inform the family that he had spent almost two months in detention at Chisapani army barracks with Karna Bahadur Chowdhury . The family reported the case to the ICRC and local human rights organizations, but has received no news about their missing relative.182
