Maoist rebels have battled government forces for more than a decade in Nepal. Thousands have been killed or abducted by both rebels and government security forces.

Many of them, including those `disappeared' by the security forces are still missing. Under the terms of its ceasefire with the Maoists, the Nepali government has agreed to reveal their whereabouts.
