Tehran: Two protesters who were arrested during violent protests across the country following the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody in Iran have been hanged for killing by security forces.
According to the international news organization, in the statement issued by the spokesperson of the judiciary of Iran, it has been said that two people, Mohammad Mahdi Karami and Seyyed Mohammad Hosseini, were hanged on the court order.
According to the statement, during the protest against the killing of a youth by the police, the two brutally assaulted a paramilitary force official by stripping him naked, resulting in the death of the official.
The court, after conducting a transparent investigation and completing all legal proceedings, convicted the two of them in a hearing in October for killing a paramilitary force official, Ruhollah Ajamian, during violent protests.
The statement further said that later the Supreme Court of the country also upheld the death sentence, so the sentence was executed this morning and the dead bodies were handed over to the relatives after necessary action.
It should be noted that on December 8 this year, a social worker named Mohsin Shikari was hanged for the crime of ‘enmity with God’ on the order of the court. He was arrested during Mahsa Amini protests.
In Iran, on September 18 last year, a young Kurdish girl, Mahsa Amini, was arrested for not wearing the hijab properly. She died due to alleged torture while in custody, but the police rejected the allegation of torture and said that the cause of death of the girl was heart attack.
The death of Mahsa Amini sparked violent protests across the country that spread throughout the world. The Iranian government says that Western forces are behind the protests and want to weaken Iran.
The death toll during the protests has exceeded 400, including 46 security personnel, while 14 have been sentenced to death.
