Iranian girl Armita Geravand who fell into coma after alleged assault over hijab is now ‘brain dead’ – Times of India

NEW DELHI: An Iranian teenage girl who fell into a coma earlier this month following an alleged encounter with officers over violating the country’s hijab law is now said to be “brain dead”.
“Follow-ups on the latest health condition of Armita Geravand indicate that her health condition as brain dead seems certain despite the efforts of the medical staff,” Reuters reported quoting the Islamic Republic of Iran News Network said.
The girl had stoked a row after boarding a Metro train in Iran’s capital without a headscarf.
What happened in the few seconds after Armita Geravand entered the train on Sunday remain in question.
A friend told Iranian state television that she hit her head on the station’s platform, the soundless footage aired by the broadcaster from outside of the car is blocked by a bystander.

Just seconds later, her limp body is carried off.
Geravand’s mother and father appeared in state media footage saying a blood pressure issue, a fall or perhaps both contributed to their daughter’s injury.
However, Armita is reportedly said to have been pushed into the metro train by female police agents.
