HRANA News Agency – Valiullah Vaziri, transsexual resident of Galikesh in Golestan province who had been collectively raped, was ridiculed after going to the police. After protests from this citizen to their disregard, he was detained and transferred to general crime prison in Gonbad-e-Kawoos.
According to the report of the Human Rights Activists News Agency in Iran (HRANA), he was beaten and raped by a group in the village of Quli Tapeh of this city, on Wednesday August 3.
