- 95. Jagat Kumar Chowdhury
- Twenty-two-year-old Jagat Kumar Chowdhury was CPN-M area-in-charge in Motipur VDC, Bardia district. On January 19, 2003 (Magh 5, 2059), he went to Nepalgunj to seek medical assistance for a stomach problem. On his way home from the hospital, he was arrested by a joint group of RNA soldiers and APF in Kohalpur.
- The family reported the detention to local human rights organizations and the ICRC. Relatives went repeatedly to the Chisapani army barracks, the RNA office in Nepalgunj, and the APF training camp at Samsergunj, but the officials denied any knowledge of the arrest. In May-June, 2003 (Jestha 2060), a released detainee told the family that he had been detained together with Jagat Kumar Chowdhury at the Chisapani army barracks, and that Jagat Kumar had asked him to inform his family upon his release.90
