Seeking answers: The fate of Armita Geravand
As we produce this episode, a young woman is currently fighting for her life in a hospital under a heavy security presence.
In today’s episode, we will delve into the heart-wrenching details of 16-year-old Armita Geravand’s battle for survival. Her story gained international attention after she was brutally assaulted by a Hijab enforcer.
Join us as we explore the latest updates and the unsettling circumstances that have come to light.
Could you provide more details about the incident involving Armita Geravand? What exactly happened on that fateful day?
Armita is just 16 years old and a high school student. The unfortunate incident took place on Sunday, October 1st, when Armita and her friends were at a Tehran metro station, preparing to board a subway train. It was at this moment that she reportedly became the victim of an attack by a Morality Police agent, which ultimately led to her falling into a coma due to severe injuries sustained during the incident.
The latest information that has come out from the hospital paints a grim picture of her condition. Armita is currently in a state of low consciousness, with unresponsive pupils, and she is in a critical medical condition. As you mentioned earlier, she has suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage and brain death.
It’s crucial to note that the government’s official explanation for her injuries differs significantly from what many suspect.
According to the government’s narrative, Armita’s blood pressure dropped, causing her to faint and hit her head on an iron edge. However, the events that unfolded afterward strongly indicate that she was most likely attacked inside the subway wagon and violently pushed to the ground.
Armita Geravand’s friends mentioned that her head was bleeding when she was given CPR at the metro station. What details do we have?
According to witnesses, as Armita and her friends boarded the metro train, a female Hijab enforcer confronted Armita for not wearing a headscarf, which quickly escalated into a verbal altercation. Eyewitnesses claim that the situation took a more disturbing turn when the Hijab enforcer resorted to physical violence, forcefully pushing Armita.
The impact of the shove caused Armita to fall to the ground, leading to her losing consciousness. Additionally, witnesses noted that the same Hijab enforcer was spotted lingering near the ambulance that transported Armita to the hospital, which has raised significant suspicions.
Armita’s friends recounted that when they managed to get her out of the subway car, they noticed that her head was bleeding. At that point, a nurse or doctor at the metro station administered CPR to her. Following this initial medical attention, Armita was swiftly transferred to the Air Force’s Fajr Hospital by ambulance.
The crucial question that arises here is how someone could sustain such a severe head injury solely from fainting due to low blood pressure. This raises doubts, especially considering that several doctors have publicly endorsed on social media that such head trauma is unlikely to result from a mere fainting episode, suggesting that a physical push was likely involved in Armita’s injuries.
The presence of security forces and intelligence agents at the Fajr Hospital has been reported. What does this heavy security presence suggest?
The evacuation of an entire ward at the hospital and its subsequent encirclement by security forces and plainclothes agents strongly suggests a significant level of government involvement in this case.
What’s particularly alarming is the fact that even Armita’s parents are being denied access to see her, which raises serious concerns not only about her well-being but also about the extent to which her medical condition is being controlled and manipulated.
A reporter who attempted to prepare a report on this incident was arrested when she went to the hospital. It’s important to note that the regime has become increasingly cautious following last year’s uprising in response to similar incidents. So, they did release the reporter after several hours in custody.
Security forces also visited Armita’s high school, where they intimidated and warned the students against giving any interviews or sharing any posts. They have been silenced and barred from speaking with reporters.
These actions by the authorities not only prevent the parents from discovering the truth about their daughter but also raise suspicions that they may not announce her death, if and when it occurs.
