Bishnu Prasad Gyanwali and thirteen (originally thought to be nine) other people arrested on 15 July in Dipo bazaar, Kailali District, were released yesterday afternoon. Amnesty International has received reports that all of them were severely tortured during their detention in Goraknath Cantonment. One report says that they were put in a metal drum full of water up to their necks and were repeatedly given electric shocks.
