When these agents saw that they had not been able to arrest him after 10 minutes of beatings, an agent shot him in the back.
Despite seeing his condition and that he needed to be taken to hospital because of his open wound, they refused to take him to hospital and banned others on the scene from taking him to the hospital. After about 6 hours, Abdolrahim died on the scene in front of the security forces because he was not given medical treatment.
