Iran's Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi says security forces have managed to identify people behind the assassination of Sane' Jalleh during a demonstration in Tehran.
"Necessary measures have been taken regarding the matter and the Ministry will announce its next move concerning the issue," IRNA quoted Moslehi as saying on Wednesday.
Jalleh, a Tehran University student, was assassinated by members of the anti-Iran terrorist group, Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO), during an illegal rally in the Iranian capital on February 14.
The intelligence minister further pointed out that Jalleh's assassination was part of a pre-planned scheme by the MKO, adding "they had identified their victim in advance and had planned to assassinate him."
Supporters of the defeated candidates in Iran's 2009 presidential election, Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, and terrorist MKO members gathered in small numbers in a few parts of the Iranian capital on February 14.
Tehran says American NGOs and organizations provided financial support for the post-election unrest in Iran in 2009 in an attempt to topple the Islamic establishment.
