NCRI - An inmate of Birjand Prison, behind bars on drug-related charges, was held in solitary confinement for several months and committed suicide due to extreme psychological pressures. He committed suicide and lost his life.

Around two weeks ago another Balouchi prisoner by the name of Mohammad Nohtani had committed suicide. He was also behind bars on drug-related charges in this jail.

“Mohammad had protested some time ago over his case not being looked into. He was transferred to solitary confinement as a result,” a source close to the Nohtani family said.

“After more than three months incommunicado, he no longer could tolerate the psychological pressures and harassment by prison authorities, committing suicide around 15 days ago,” the source added.

Birjand is the capital of South Khorasan Province, eastern Iran, home to a population of 178,020 people (2011).
