The statement said that intelligence forces arrested five perpetrators of the martyrdom of Martyre Shahraki.

In the initial confessions, the defendants accepted the links to counter-revolutionary groups abroad, as well as hostile spy services. They confessed to the intention of continuing terrorist acts against Shia and Sunni figures and sensitive places in the province to create a bipolar atmosphere and wage a religious warfare in Sistan and Baluchestan.

Earlier on November 3, the unidentified armed men killed a Shia cleric in charge of daily prayers at a mosque in Iran’s southeastern Zahedan in Sistan and Baluchestan Province.

Sajjad Shahraki had been shot in the head and chest and had succumbed to his wounds despite being transferred to the hospital.
