Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Colonel Mehdi Molashahi and Basij militant Javad Kikha were shot and killed by unidentified persons in Zahedan on Tuesday afternoon, as anti-government protests continued in the area and throughout Iran.
The IRGC and other Iranian security forces brutally cracked down on protesters in Zahedan in recent weeks, killing over 100 people, according to human rights organizations.
The police on Monday booked Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) chief Manzoor Pashteen under sections of terrorism for “criticizing heads and generals of the Pakistan Army” during a speech at the Asma Jahangir Conference.
The session on ‘Reluctance to Criminalize Enforced Disappearance and Arbitrary Detentions’ was also attended by Law Minister Azam Nazeer Tarar, activist Sammi Deen Baloch and former chief minister of Balochistan and chairperson of the Balochistan National Party-Mengal Akhtar Jan Mengal among others.
On the closing day of the conference on October 23, Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) chairman Manzoor Pashteen held the Pakistani Army responsible for killing the democracy, and alleged that the Army Chief is the “king” and issues all the orders in the country.
