Three women were arrested for allegedly physically assaulting a hijab-enforcer in an incident in the Tehran Metro, according to reports.
According to Abbas Karami-Rad, the head of Tehran’s Metro Police, the incident occurred over the weekend when one woman approached three others to admonish them regarding their hijabs.
Karami-Rad stated that the situation escalated, leading to the three women “attacking her and physically assaulting her.”
The three women were taken into custody by the Tehran Metro Police.
Karami-Rad said that metro staff, who witnessed the event through a surveillance camera, reported the incident to the law enforcement officer at the station, leading to their detention.
The latest arrest in Tehran sparked outrage from Iranians on social media.
Following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini at the hands of the Islamic Republic’s morality police, the regime in Tehran has doubled down on its repression of young Iranian women, arresting them and brutally beating them in public.
Another prominent hijab victim of the Iranian regime, 16-year-old Armita Geravand, lost her life after suffering a head injury when Tehran’s hijab police reportedly beat her for not having proper headscarf.
