New Delhi: The young Hadis Najafi, an Iranian woman who went viral for stepping in the middle of a protest with an uncovered head post tying her hair openly, has reportedly been shot dead.
A clip of her funeral has surfaced online which shows several persons crying over a picture of her beside a freshly dug up grave.
The report further says that the latter was in the abdomen, neck part, heart and hand. Further details in the matter are awaited.

Amini was arrested for not wearing a proper hijab, which is mandatory for women to wear by the law of the country.
Post Amini’s death on September 16, anti-hijab protests erupted with Iranian women burning the burqa and chopping their hair. Both male and female residents of Iran took the protests to the streets in various cities.
Hundreds of people gathered last week in London to condemn the death of Mahsa Amini in England.
Medical evidence shows the young woman from the Iranian province of Kurdistan suffered several violent blows to the head, which put her into a coma. However, Iran’s authorities claim she suffered a sudden heart attack, reported Euronews.
