Shabnam Dayani was killed on November 16, 2019, during Iran protests in Shiraz.
Shabnam Dayani and 12 others were run over by the vehicles of the IRGC-paramilitary force, the Bassij.
The Bassij agents subsequently opened a barrage of fire on all of them.
When Shabnam’s family went to collect her body, the authorities threatened and instructed them to declare her death an accident, but her family refused to do so.
Shabnam’s body was handed over to her family with a two-day delay and was transferred to Behbahan.
Bassij agents ordered Shabnam’s family to use a white gravestone exclusive to the Bassij, so that the regime would not be incriminated in her death. But her family rejected the regime’s demand.
Over 1,500 protesters have been killed during the Iran protests in November across the country.
The Iranian Resistance has compiled information on the deaths of at least 400 in Tehran, 320 in Kermanshah, 270 in Fars, 240 in Khuzestan, 120 in Isfahan, and 100 in Alborz (Karaj). According to eyewitnesses, hundreds of bodies were taken to Namazi Hospital in Shiraz during the uprising. This information has not been accounted for in the death toll compiled by the Iranian Resistance and is being investigated.
The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) also released the names of 28 more martyrs of the uprising, bringing to 504 the number of those killed in 56 cities identified by name among the estimated 1,500 protesters.
The Iranian regime has remained silent and is trying to conceal the facts. The suppressive forces refuse to hand over the bodies of those killed to their families. Many of those martyred were snatched from hospitals or streets and buried in unknown locations.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), said the regime still refuses to hand over the bodies of the martyrs and brazenly demands their families pay for the bullets with which it murdered their children. This shocking crime is undoubtedly one of the most horrific crimes of the 21st century and by any measure amounts to a manifest case of crimes against humanity, she noted, underscoring that the international community must banish the religious fascism ruling Iran.
