Mahsa Yazdani's 20-year-old son Mohammad Javad Zahedi was shot dead during the nationwide protests following the death of Mahsa Amini last year.
The incident has strong echoes of the case of Mahsa Amini, who died in police custody in September 2022, after being detained for failing to obey the dress code.
The death of Armita Geravand comes after her being in a coma for weeks in Tehran and after the one-year anniversary of the death of Mahsa Amini and the nationwide protests it sparked.
Amini's death in custody on September 16, 2022, after her arrest by the morality police in Tehran for an alleged breach of Iran's strict dress rules for women led to mass protests across the country.
Amini died on Sept. 16, 2022, after she was arrested for allegedly violating Iran's mandatory headscarf law. Her death triggered protests that spread across the country.
Iranians at home and abroad marked the first anniversary Saturday of the death in police custody of Mahsa Amini.
First arrested 22 years ago, Mohammadi, 51, has spent much of the past two decades in and out of jail over her unstinting campaigning for human rights in Iran.
On September 16, 2022, nationwide protests erupted in Iran with the slogan "woman, life, freedom" following the death of Mahsa Amini in police custody.
Amini had been detained for allegedly wearing her hijab too loosely in violation of strictures demanding women in public wear Islamic headscarves. The 22-year-old died three days later in custody.
The demonstrations over Amini's death that erupted after her arrest a year ago by the country's morality police, allegedly over the hijab, represented one of the largest challenges to Iran's theocracy
Amini, an Iranian Kurd, died on September 16, 2022, after her arrest in Tehran for an alleged breach of the Islamic Republic's strict dress rules for women.
Foreign-based rights groups have reported multiple arrests ahead of the anniversary of Amini's death.
Nationwide protests erupted last fall after 22-year-old Mahsa Amini died in the custody of the morality police.
The morality police had largely pulled back following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini last September, as authorities struggled to contain mass protests calling for the overthrow of the theocracy.
