- At 9 p.m. on January 30, 2004 (Magh 16, 2060), a group of about twelve to fifteen uniformed RNA soldiers came to the home of Hari Sharan Thapa, a thirty-eight-year-old farmer, in Thangre VDC, Dhading district, adjacent to the main Kathmandu-Hetauda highway. The soldiers surrounded the house, and several soldiers then entered the home and ordered Thapa to come with them. The soldiers explained to Thapa's family that they wanted Thapa to accompany them to the main road to sign a statement, but when they reached the main road, the soldiers bundled Thapa into their car and departed.
- Thapa's father, a farmer, went to the Khani Kola army barracks to try to find his son, but received no information. He also went to Kathmandu to search for his son, without result. Unaware of the existence of human rights organizations, he did not seek their help or report the case to the ICRC or NHRC. According to the family, Thapa, a father of four, had no known links to CPN-M.27
