Details of kidnapping and torturing Khosro Riahi Nazari
Khosro Riahi Nazari, 37,
Married, with 2 children, teacher
Lived in Tehran,
Khosro's wife: my husband was only a teacher. He worked from morning to night to educate youth and he had classed until 10 PM in order to make a living. On July 9, 1982 he was kidnapped because he was standing in Eskandari Street near Sarbaz swimming pool; he was waiting for his kids. After 2 days he was killed.
His body was found on July 11, 1982 in Sohrevardi Street, Zahedan Alley, before No. 26, in a half-built building, while he was tied. His body was transferred to legal examiner and he was buried on July 13 in Beheshte-zahra as an unknown person.
Mehran-e Asdaghi, the commander of terrorists in Tehran: We kidnapped Khosro Riahi two days after kidnapping Shoemaker and two revolutionary guards because our team had seen him in front of their house in Eskandari Street while he had leaned on his car. Our team had become suspicious about him and thought that he is watching their house, so they followed him but couldn't kidnap him. The next day, they saw him again at that place, so this time they kidnap him.
Majid-e Rahbar and Mahmood-e Rahmani, from special terrorist section, went closer to him and showed forged ID cards and introduced themselves as revolutionary guards. After that they inspected him but found nothing. They took him to their car by force and closed his eyes and told him they were taking him to Guards center.
They brought Khosro to torture house in Bahar Street while his eyes were close.
I, was there in the house with Mostafa Ma'dan Pisheh vand Shahram Roshan Tabar. We took shoemaker and 2 revolutionary guards to another room and brought him to Bathroom and tied him with rope. We asked him to introduce himself.
He said that he was a teacher. We looked at his card which belonged to Education and Training Organization.
We asked the reason of his presence in Eskandari Street, he said that he was waiting for his kids who had gone to swimming pool.
We started torturing him and we hit him with cable. He shouted and we held his mouth.
We went further and burnt his hands and waist with hot rod but he repeated his own words. We didn't know what to do and on the other hand torturing 2 revolutionary guards was more important for us so we left him without any results.
The next day I was at home with Mostafa and Shahram when I heard someone shouting; I ran to the hall and saw that he is skirmishing with Mostafa and Shahram and asks for help.
He could have fought with them by the pretext of going to toilet.
I shot a bullet into his foot. He fell and became silent. We were tying him up again when he started crying and shouting.
We were trying to make him silent when Mostafa took the pistol and shot into his head.
Khosro fell down and his blood flowed inside bathroom.
Since much blood had gone into the bathroom we washed Khosro's body and tied his body with cable so that we could put his body into the rear booth of the car.
I told Mohammed Reza to bury his body in desert but since he didn't have tools to dig the ground he had left his body in a ruin in Sohrevardi Street.
