According to the Public and Revolutionary Prosecutor of Garmsar, Semnan Province, twelve individuals were apprehended on April 1 for purportedly violating Ramadan regulations, as per Basij News Agency. Additionally, several others were reportedly arrested for public alcohol consumption.

“In an effort to address breaches of Ramadan regulations, twelve individuals were apprehended during inspections of parks and recreational areas, and legal proceedings have been initiated against them,” stated prosecutor Vahid Mohammadi.

“Furthermore, several individuals were detained for consuming alcohol in public, and multiple motorcycles and vehicles were seized,” he added.
