  • 96. Nepali Tharu
  • At about 11 p.m. on January 7, 2003 (Poush 23, 2059), a group of RNA soldiers came to the home of thirty-eight-year-old Ram Karan Tharu, a farmer living in Bhimapur VDC-7, Bardia district. The soldiers pretended to be Maoists, and told Ram Karan they wanted him to join them in an attack on the nearby Tapara temporary army camp, but Ram Karan knew they were soldiers and did not respond. The soldiers then ordered Ram Karan's family to go inside the house, and ordered Ram Karan to come with them.91
  • The same night, the soldiers went with Ram Karan to the home of fifteen-year-old Nepali Tharu, a student in nearby Rajapur who provided food and shelter for the Maoists, according to her family. The relatives believe that Ram Karan brought the soldiers to their house and told them that Nepali was a Maoist. The soldiers took Nepali Tharu with them, and the two detainees were never seen again.92
  • The next morning, the families immediately went to the Tapara temporary army camp, the only RNA base in the remote Rajapur area at the time. A helicopter had arrived and departed shortly before they reached the army camp. The soldiers denied arresting the two people. The families reported the case to INSEC and other local human rights groups, but have received no information.93
