Tehran, 17 Jan. (AKI) – A Kurdish student has died in custody at the Iranian intelligence ministry’s detention centre in Sanandaj where he was taken after his arrest ten days ago.

Ebrahim Lotfollahi was a well known activist from Payam Nour University in Sanandaj, capital of the Iranian province of Kurdistan.

The parents of Ebrahim who saw him for the last time after his arrest on Wednesday last week told the media that “the boy showed evident signs of torture and abuse”.

As soon as news spread about his death, dozens of students gathered at his university campus.

The students blame Ebrahim’s death on Mehdi Molavali, from the office of the intelligence ministry, who reportedly conducts interrogations of political detainees and is said to use violence to obtain confessions.
