Nika Shakarami she was one of the thousands who took to the streets after Mahsa Amini’s death. The 22-year-old died after Iranian moral police intervened, who felt her headdress was insufficiently covering her hair.

The relatives were not allowed to see the whole body of the deceased, only her head was exposed for a few seconds. According to media reports, the teenager had a broken nose and a broken skull. The injuries indicated that they were hit with a police baton.
