Tehran, Iran, Jul. 31 – Iran has deployed squads of women-only vice police in a new crackdown on “un-Islamic” dress.

Eight women were arrested in the northern province of Gilan as part of a new clamp-down on “social corruption”, the semi-official Jomhouri Islami reported on Sunday.

“The women were arrested for disrespecting Islamic virtues and for having repulsive and immoral attire”, the hard-line daily added.

The daily added that women police officers in patrols belonging to the Directorate to Fight Social Corruption were roaming the streets to find women violating the stringent dress code and ‘to fight public displays of corruption and mal-veiling”.
