Iran: A man shot dead by Iran Security Force in subway station
A middle-aged man was shot dead by the State Security Forces on July 15, 2017 at the Shahre-Rey subway station.
The 40-year-old man was shot by the SSF after protesting against a clergy who harassed him under the pretext of “prohibiting vice and promoting virtue.”
“Contrary to the claims of the regime, the assailant did not do anything with the people and only objected to the Mullah’s harassment,” according to the eyewitnesses.
The state-run Mehr news agency quoted Hadi Tamhidi, the head of the security council of city of Ray as saying, “this morning a clergy was enjoining a middle-aged man, his action caused anger in him, so he attacked the Mullah with knife.”
Sadly, the man was later pronounced deceased while being transferred to a hospital.
