Farmer Keshav Thapa went missing on 13 June after he went to the Bhaktapur district court to seek compensation for torture he had allegedly suffered at the hands of a guard at the Surya Binayak army barracks in Bhaktapur, a district neighboring Kathmandu. A source has reported that he is in custody at the Surya Binayak army barracks, where he was allegedly tortured in April, but a senior officer there has denied this.
