- According to his family, the army had been actively searching for twenty-seven-year-old Nischal Nakarmi, and Nakarmi had gone into hiding to avoid arrest. On December 3, 2003 (Mangshir 17, 2060), Nakarmi was detained by RNA soldiers in the Koteshower area of Kathmandu. He was able to call his family on December 8, 2003 (Mangshir 22, 2060), telling them that he had been detained, but that he did not know where he was being held. This was the last contact between Nakarmi and his family. A weekly newspaper later reported that the RNA had detained Nakarmi and that he was being held at Sundrarijal investigation center in Kathmandu.
- The family reported the "disappearance" to Amnesty International, INSEC, ICRC, and the NHRC, but received no information. Even after the arrest, RNA soldiers came to the family's residence several times, inquiring about the whereabouts of Nakarmi.
- Nakarmi is suspected by the Nepali authorities of being an organizer for CPN-M, and was previously detained for six months during the state of emergency.9
