Family source said that Ali was kidnapped while he was on the way home after reading Namaj yesterday morning. Somebody had called him on the phone and he had not returned home after that, according to Ali’s family source.

Ali had called his sister from his phone and told her that he had been abducted and the kidnappers had threatened to kill him if ransom was not paid to them by today morning.

“After he phoned his sister, his mobile was switched off,” said one of his family members.

A family source said that two persons had forcefully taken Chaurasiya on a bike towards Raxaul in India from the Clock Tower in Birgunj at 2:00pm today. Chaurasiya is a district member of Nepal Tarun Dal.

Both families have reported to the police about the abduction. Parsa Superintendent of Police Somendra Singh Rathaur said that police had launched a search operation immediately after the abductions were reported.

“We cannot exactly say Ali and Chaurasiya were abducted. Despite that, police have initiated search operation to find them,” Rathaur said.
