According to latest news from Human Rights Activists more then 400 people have been arrested in the past few days in relation to protests and turmoil because of rationing of gas.

For farsi speakers please feel free to visit the origional link and for non-Farsi speakers I have translated the article.

تا کنون 255 نفر از بازداشت شدگان حوادث اخیر تهران به زندان اوین منتقل شده اند که از این تعداد 100 نفر در اندرزگاه یک { قرنطینه } و 40 نفر به سالنهای 7 و 8 و 10 اندرزگاه 8 و 25 نفر به سالنهای 1و2و4 اندرزگاه 7 و 6 نفر به بازداشتگاه مخوف 209 اطلاعات و 84 نفر به بند 241 حفاظت قوه قضاییه منتقل شده اند.

As of today 255 of individuals arrested in regards to the recent protests in Tehran have been transferred to Evin prison. About 100 of these individuals are in Section 1 of the prison while 40 of them are in rooms 7, 8 and 10 in Section 8 of the Evin Prison. 25 people are in rooms 1,2,4 in section 7 and six people have been taken to s. 209 of the Evin prison. Also 241 people have been taken to revolutionary detention centers.

90 people were arrested last night and taken to Evin prisoner, however their names have not officially been registered with the prison, therefore their families have no way of knowing their whereabout, or can get in touch with them.

The 84 people in section 241 of the Evin prison are under terrible conditions, with 3 to 4 people occupaying a tiny cell and their bodies are completely bruised due to torture and physical abuse which they suffered before being taken to the cells. Among the people who have been arrested there are at least 6 women. Most of these individuals have been charged with insulting the Islamic Regime leaders, protesting and one individual has been charged with carrying a weapon.

The Human Rights Activists in Iran are extremely worried about the well being of these individuals and demand an immediate and fair look into their files.
