According to eyewitness reports, Haji-Rasouli, an Iranian Kurdish man, was deliberately shot and killed by Iranian security forces in the mountains of Mirgezhan in Piranshahr, Iranian Kurdistan, on May 2.

     A reliable source said: “He was commuting in the mountain without carrying any illegal goods. He was attacked by security forces and he was killed. Police, in order to be acquitted from their committed crime, placed some alcoholic beverages near his corpse.”   

The source described Haji-Rasouli as a noted resident of Piranshahr and a father of three children.
