The Iranian regime’s police on Wednesday, February 26th, stationed at the entrance of the Payam Nour University in this city, under the pretext of fighting against improper veiling and arrested around 40 girls and boys, holding them in the streets in an insulting manner.
This repressive measure raised other students’ anger and responded by clashing with the security forces. People in this area entered the scuffle and beat a number of the police agents, while the entire incident led to 30 students being arrested.
