- OHCHR is also investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of Phuli Devi Yadav Mahato, a pregnant woman who died on 26 August while being transferred from one hospital in Saptari District to another in another in Sunsari District. It is seeking to confirm the veracity of initial reports that she committed suicide after being taken by the CPN-M but the events leading up to her death are as yet unclear. Preliminary information indicates that she and her husband had returned from India to their community, some of whom were unhappy with the return as she had remarried following the death of her first husband. At a public meeting to discuss the issue, two CPN-M cadres reportedly beat the couple and forced the meeting to order their separation. She was then taken to the house of one of the CPN-M cadres where she fell sick apparently due to poisoning. According to OHCHR's information, the two CPN-M cadres are currently being held by the CPN-M, under investigation for forcing villagers to take the "wrong decision".
