Suspect Shaghayegh Khaneh Zarrin was seized in Shiraz in the southern Iranian province of Fars at around 8am on 26th June.

He was told to go back inside the house and was not given any explanation as to why they were searching his home and ordering his daughter to prepare to leave with them.

During the terrifying raid, Farzad started suffering from chest pains and Shaghayegh wanted to call an ambulance.

But the agents reportedly stopped his daughter from calling paramedics before it became obvious that her father needed urgent medical care.

According to local media, the agents forced family members to tidy up the home as they waited for the ambulance to arrive.

The Iranian authorities arrested three women in total in Shiraz, naming Negar Ighani and Jila Sharafi Nasrabadi as the other two detainees.

The charges against the three women are currently unknown.
