- On September 23, 2003 (Ashoj 6, 2060), at 6 a.m., a group of fifteen uniformed RNA soldiers, their faces covered with bandanas, came to the parental home of nineteen-year-old Dharma Raj Dangol in Khokana area of Lalitpur. Dangol was a student at Shree Rudrayani Secondary School. The soldiers asked for Dangol, who was not at home at the time, but was guarding a nearby club that had been burglarized recently. After the soldiers reassured the family they would not harm Dangol, a relative led the soldiers to the club, and the soldiers promptly arrested Dangol, taking him away blindfolded. He has not been seen since then.
- The family reported the "disappearance" to the NHRC, the ICRC, and Amnesty International, but has received no information to date. Dangol was a member of the Nepali Congress political party, and his relatives were not aware of any Maoist involvement.20
- On November 9, 2004, a NHRC representative claimed that Dharma Raj Dangol, among others, was still held in the Bhairabnath army barracks.21
