On 6 July OHCHR-Nepal, Representative, Richard Bennett, met with Defence Minister, Bidhya Bhandari, and expressed concern about the recommended promotion of Major General Toran Jung Bahadur Singh to Lieutenant General. On 26 May 2006, OHCHR released a report of its investigation into arbitrary detention, torture and disappearance at Maharajgunj Barracks which was under the control of the Bhairabnath Battalion. Singh was reportedly the commander of the 10th Brigade in 2003-2004 during which period, these human rights violations occurred.
