Information regarding alleged incident | घटेको भनिएको घटनासम्बन्धी जानकारी
- At around 12 p.m. on August 24, 2004 (Bhadra 8, 2061), ten men in civilian dress came to the office of Apanga Mahila Sang, an organization for disabled women in Koteshwor-35, Kathmandu. Thirty-four-year-old Dinesh Limbu, who had come there to visit a friend, was taken away by the men. His friend told the family about the arrest, saying he believed the men were from the army. Limbu has not been seen since then.
- A relative informed NHRC and Amnesty International, as well as local human rights organizations, of the "disappearance," and added Limbu’s name to the list prepared by the "disappeared" persons’ relatives who were on hunger strike in August 2004. The family was unable to obtain any information on his whereabouts.
- Limbu was running a small shop and was actively seeking foreign employment (two years ago he worked in Saudi Arabia). The family did not know whether he was politically involved.
