Two other detainees, Ali Pooladi and Sarou Ghahremani, who were arrested by security forces during the recent uprising in Iran, were murdered due to torture and beatings inside prison. The bodies were given to their families.

Ali Poladi, a 26-year-old resident from the Gavitar village of Marzanabad Chalous (a city in Mazandaran province in northern Iran), was arrested on Friday night, December 22, by agents of the regime's security forces and transferred to the Chalous Detention Center.

On Saturday morning, security forces informed the family of the young man to receive their child's body.

The family of this young man said that Ali had no particular illness and was in complete health at the time of his arrest.

Following the referral of the family to get Ali Pooladi's body, some conflicts between police forces and the family of the young man have been reported.

The Iranian security forces also killed  Saro Ghahremani - 25, a Sanandaj resident, in the city security prison,  after being tortured, according to another news.

On Saturday, December 23, Sarou Ghahremani’s body was delivered to his parents after eleven days that he was detained by security forces. He was arrested on December 12.

Parents of this young man under the pressure of security agents of Iranian regime, and without the presence of other members of the family, buried their innocent child's body.

Earlier, the news of the deaths of several young people arrested during the uprising of the Iranian people in the regime's prisons has been published, including Sinai Ghanbari (23) in Evin Prison, Mohammad Heidari (22) in Arak Prison.

Amnesty International has issued two statements (January 4 and 9, 2017)   and has Expressed concern  about the behavior of the Iranian regime with the detainees.

In the January 9 statement Ms. Magdalena Mughrabi, Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa Programmethat is qoted: “We have long documented the nightmarish conditions in detention facilities in Iran, including the use of torture. Those suspected of having any responsibility for these deaths should be suspended from their positions and prosecuted in proceedings that respect international fair trial standards and without recourse to the death penalty.”

“The authorities must not only inform family members of detainees’ whereabouts, but also allow families to visit detainees and ensure they have legal representation. Nobody should face reprisals for inquiring about the whereabouts of a loved one or seeking truth about their fate,” Mughrabi  added.

Also, Asma Jahangir, the UN Special Rapporteur for Human Rights situation in Iran, in an interview with Radio Farda called upon the Islamic Republic of Iran to publish the list of all people detained during recent protests in Iran.
