In an interview with a Persian newspaper, Golrokh's mother, who underwent surgery a few days ago, describes her daughter's situation,  "On Monday of the 24th October 2016, the Intelligence Revolutionary Guards forces raided her home to arrest her. They were kicking and punching the door to scare Golrokh. As Golrokh did not open the door for an hour, they opened the door with an iron rod and entered the house. While Golrokh was asking them about identity and where they come from, the forces did not pay attention to her and they handcuffed and blindfolded her. She asked them to show their ID or court order but they ignored to do so.”
