Iran: Baluch detainees tortured to make forced confessions
Five Baluch citizens, who were arrested four months ago, were subjected to torture to make forced confessions. These men who were arrested by the Ministry of Intelligence in Iranshahr on July 8, have been identified as Mohammad Saleh Shahdad Zehi, Mahmoud Shahli Bar, Idris Rokni, Abdolaziz Rokni and Hashem Zardukouhi. According to an informed source, they were arrested after a Bassij agent (the regime’s paramilitary force) was killed in the town of Sarbaz.
“They are still under torture at the Zahedan Ministry of Intelligence Detention Center”, the source added. According to the source, the agents pulled out three of Idris Rokni’s fingernails.
