According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), Ali Farrokhi who spent eight years in prison on charge of stick-up, hanged himself on September 3, 2013 behind the sentry room and in front of the security camera. 
One of the prisoners of ward 1 contacted HRANA reporter and said “Ali Farrokhi was transferred from ward 7 to ward 1 recently. His only financial source was crocheting and since string became forbidden in prison shops, Ali asked string from prison authorities many times. The authorities told him if he will be transferred to ward 1 he will get string but it was just an empty promise. He was killing time with crocheting and as well was a financial source for his daily life needs. The authorities did not provide string to Ali with the excuse that the prisoners making rope from it. Ali went to sentry room for the last time at 9 O’clock in the morning and asked for string, when he got the negative answer one more time, hanged himself a few minutes later in front of the security cameras behind the sentry room. The place he hanged himself is under the control of the security cameras but the prison officers did not do anything in terms of rescuing Ali.”
