About 50 families have returned to their villages in Lamjung after the Maoists assured them they would not be harmed. They had abandoned their homes after constant Maoist extortion, threats and intimidation. Most of the victims were party workers, teachers and their families. After the announcement, they returned home to look after their property and rejoin families who had been left behind in the villages controlled by the Maoists.
