Tehran, Iran, Nov. 03 – Three students who were detained in the course of an anti-government protest earlier this week at Tehran’s Allameh University have been transferred to the infamous Ward 209 of Tehran’s Evin Prison, Iran Focus has learnt.

Several hundred students took part in a protest on Tuesday on the campus of Allameh University denouncing the recent government-orchestrated crackdown inside Iranian universities, according to eye-witness accounts.

Some 20 students were arrested for participating in the rally. Among them were Arman Sedaqati, Behnam Sepehrmand, and Maziar Samiee, who were beaten as they were being detained.

The protestors chanted “death to the dictator” and called on the authorities to free fellow students who had been arrested over the past several months. They also demanded that members of the hard-line Bassij force, an off-shoot of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, be expelled from universities.

Sedaqati , Sepehrmand, and Samiee were taken to Evin’s Ward 209 on Wednesday afternoon, fellow students have confirmed to Iran Focus.

The three students briefly contacted their families by phone late on Wednesday, informing them of their transfer to the infamous ward. It is believed that they had been handed over to the Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS, or VEVAK) earlier on Wednesday. It is unclear as of yet what charges they will face.

Evin Prison was built by the Shah’s regime as a modern security prison to house political dissidents, but it became the Islamic Republic’s most dreaded gulag and the site of thousands of political executions. Ward 209 is exclusively set aside for political prisoners.
