Dina Ghalibaf, a journalist and student at Shahid Beheshti University, was moved to the women’s ward of Evin Prison on April 21, 2024, following her arrest by security forces on April 16.

Civil rights activist Narges Mohammadi confirmed in a voice message from the prison that Ghalibaf showed signs of bruising and shared her account of being sexually assaulted.

On April 15, Ghalibaf shared on social media that she had been detained by police at a Tehran metro station for allegedly wearing an improper hijab. She described being taken to a room, where she endured electric shocks and sexual assault. This public account led to her arrest the next day by security forces.

The agency responsible for her arrest remains unknown.

Previously, Ghalibaf was summoned by the university’s disciplinary committee for participating in a protest against the execution of several individuals in the “House of Isfahan” legal case.

Ghalibaf has worked with various news outlets, including ISNA and Eghtesad Online.
