Mahsa Amini, a young Iranian woman, died of a heart attack and coma this Friday at a police station where she was detained by the Vice President’s police for not wearing a veil, according to media reports in the Persian country.
“Mahsa Amini, who fell into a coma after being detained by morality patrols, has died,” Etemad newspaper reported in a brief, citing the young woman’s uncle as a source.
A young woman was taken to a police station for a “re-education hour” and suffered a heart attack.
The 22-year-old was arrested on Tuesday afternoon for wearing the wrong veil and was taken to the police station to attend a “re-education hour,” her family protested.
A few hours later, she was admitted to Kasara Hospital in the capital in a coma after suffering a heart attack.
The news spread like wind on social media and many users expressed their anger.
Police confirmed his arrest on Thursday in a statement to “clarify the dress code” in which he denied involvement.
“Suddenly, she suffered a heart attack (…) and was immediately taken to the hospital,” said a police statement released by Iranian media.
The police have denied their crime and the president of Iran has ordered an investigation.
Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi on Friday ordered an investigation into the incident.
“President Ibrahim Raisi ordered the Ministry of Interior to urgently and accurately investigate the details of the Mahsa incident and submit a report with the results,” the Iranian government tweeted.

For its part, Amnesty International (AI) has called for a criminal investigation into the suspicious death of a young woman in police custody.
In addition, the human rights group called the laws requiring veiling “degrading, humiliating and discriminatory”.
Many Iranians, who expressed outrage on social media, were not convinced by the police’s explanation.
The government has increased pressure on women to follow strict dress and behavior rules.
“Mahsa Amini’s arrest for leadership (clothing) followed by her heart attack and food is enough to make many generations of youth hate religion,” reformist cleric Mohammad Ali Abtahi, who served as deputy speaker of parliament, said on Twitter yesterday. Between 2001 and 2004.
The ultra-conservative Raisi government has in recent months increased pressure on women to adhere to strict dress and behavior rules.
So the scary vans of the so-called morale police are more visible than ever in places like Tajrish Square in northern Tehran, arresting women for not wearing the veil properly.
After the 1979 revolution, the veil was made compulsory under Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who declared that women would be “naked” without it.
