- Alleged Dates of Arrest3 December 2003
- According to consistent testimony, from September to mid-December 2003, approximately 70 detainees were being kept in the Hall. In order to accommodate these numbers and to minimize the chances of communication, detainees were placed with their head and feet in alternating directions. From late November to mid-December 2003, four key detainees occupied the only cots (camp beds) used in the Hall, positioned in the four corners of the Hall: Krishna KC and Himal Sharma, the principal ANNISU-R student leaders, and Bhim Giri and Nischal Nakarmi, students involved in other aspects of CPN-M activity. Their position on cots allowed guards to watch them more closely but also gave these individuals a view, when they risked peeking beneath their blindfolds, of all detainees who came and went. Other detainees also could peek from beneath their blindfolds with relative ease, but at risk of beatings.
