DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Hadis Najafi shot and killed by security forces has become the latest symbol of the tragedy, outpouring of grief and defiance that has characterised the nationwide protests in Iran since they began on September 16.
Journalist and women’s rights advocate Masih Alinejad announced her death on September 25, posting her name and a video of her along with the details of her death: shot six times by authorities after tying her unscarved hair back and boldly stepping into the middle of a protest in Karaj.
This girl who was getting ready to join the protest against the murder of #MahsaAmini got killed by six bullets.#HadisNajafi, 20،, was shot in the chest, face and neck by Islamic Republic’s security forces.
Images and the video of Hadis have been widely shared on social media. According to media reports, she sustained injuries in the abdomen, neck, heart and hand on September 21. After the attack by security forces, she was taken to Ghaem Hospital, where she later died.
“She was only 20 years old,” Hadis’ sister told Alinejad. “Her heart was broken for Mahsa Amini. She said she would not stay silent. They killed her with six bullets.”
Almost 200 miles away in Rasht, reports have emerged that an archaeology student arrested during the protests was denied medical treatment after he sustained a knife attack in Lakan Prison in Sabze Meydan, Rasht.
The family of Alireza Ghamgosar, who is studying at Kashan University, says he is now being treated in a clinic. They say Ghamgasar told them during a telephone call on September 25 that he was stabbed in the back after being detained on September 21. No details are available about the attack or about who stabbed him.
Official media in Iran have reported that 35 people have died during the recent protests, but non-Iranian media and other unofficial reports insist the death toll is much higher.
