Binod Sajana Chaudhary, Nepaljung Express
27 September 2003

At the time of his death on September 7, Chaudhary was a contributor to the weekly Nepalgunj Express in the western district of Kailali. He used to write for the Maoist weekly Janadesh, which no longer exists.

Chaudhary was reported shot dead at point-blank range along with a Maoist activist. The daily Nepal Samacharpatra quoted Maoist rebel sources as alleging that he was shot by members of the security forces in civilian dress after showing his identity card. He had been on his way on Kegaun in search of information at the time. The Maoist sources said he was not armed.

Local security sources told the press that Chaudhary and the Maoist activist were killed in an armed clash.
