Nepal: Fear for safety/ possible "disappearance". Lok Krishna Bhattarai (m), politician and lawyer
Lok Krishna Bhattarai was reportedly arrested on 18 February by four men in plain clothes, who claimed to be security forces personnel.

Attempts by relatives to locate Lok Krishna Bhattarai, including contacting human rights organisations and the press in Kathmandu, have so far failed.
