Hengaw: October 23, 2022
Negin Abdulmaleki, a 21-year-old student from Qorveh city in Sanandaj province, was murdered by security forces during uprisings in Hamadan city protesting the state murder of Zhina Amini. Despite the fact that it has been two weeks since her death, this incident has remained hidden from the media.
During the Hamedan uprisings on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, Negin Abdulmaleki was gravely injured and bleeding due to baton blows to the head and skull by security forces, and she died after being returned to the student dormitory, according to the report received by Hengaw Organization for Human Rights.
One of the Hamadan University of Technology students who witnessed the incident told Hengaw: "After learning about Negin's death, university security, along with a number of government authorities, went to the dormitory and began threatening the students who knew about the incident." Negin's family was summoned by authorities to Hamadan from Qorveh the same night.
According to the student who spoke to Hengaw, "University security and authorities have told the students and Negin's family that they should claim Negin died as a result of eating expired canned fish."
Hengaw has been informed that Negin Abdulmaleki's burial was held on Friday, October 14, 2022, amid strong security measures in the city of Qorveh.
It is worth noting that Negin Abdulmaleki was a medical engineering student at Hamadan University of Technology.
