A few days ago, an Iranian fire-fighter lost his life to rescue an Afghan worker. Afghans are uninvited yet respected guests of Iranians; however, human rights organizations should know that Iranians have paid a heavy price for the social harms they inflict upon Iranians. The story of this Afghan man, who is called by Iranian media the ‘night hyena’, corroborates this claim.
According to a report by Mizan, as translated by IFP, an Iranian woman referred to Tehran’s Police Department on August 5, 2016, to file a complaint against a wicked Afghan man who had sneaked into her house at 4:30 a.m. She said she was sleeping in her bedroom when he attacked and raped her.
Based on her remarks, this was the second time that she was falling victim to his sexual desires.
“This time he broke into my house on the 1st of August at 1:00 a.m. and assaulted me once again,” she said.
Since the attacker had committed the crime for two times at a short interval and in the same way, Tehran’s Police concluded that he would do it again. Therefore, they conducted undercover surveillance around the plaintiff’s living place.
No more than a few nights later, they noticed a man was climbing up the wall of the woman’s house. He was arrested right away.
Hamed, 24, from Afghanistan, confessed to the allegations and said, “I entered Iran illegally and after a few days of roaming about on the streets, I found the door of a house open in Tehran’s Yousef Abad neighbourhood.”
“I sneaked into her house and threatened her to death if she makes a noise,” he added, confessing that he sexually assaulted her and escaped.
Judicial authorities of Tehran’s Criminal Court have issued the order to publish his photo in media outlets and asked the possible victims to identify him.
