Clashes erupted between Kurds and Iranian security forces on Thursday in Iran’s city of Mahabad where a woman is said to have committed suicide after a man tried to rape her, Al Arabiya reported.

Security forces were deployed to deal with the angry crowds who had gathered to protest against what one source said was Tehran’s discriminatory treatment of its Kurdish population.

According to posts on social media, hotel employee Frinaz Khasarwani committed suicide after a ministry of tourism official tried to sexually assault her, reportedly in collaboration with the hotel’s manager who was trying to get a five-star listing from the ministry.

However, what has been posted on social media is a “weak narration” of the incident, Kurdish news website Rudaw reported citing a resident in the area who called upon the crowds to give authorities enough time to carry out its investigation.

That is awful. The woman should have had it dealt with properly instead of taking her own life, it is a real shame. Although I do not understand why fighting would erupt about it because that is not going to solve anything, it will only make it much worse. The official who tried to rape her should be jailed for life!! I think it is horrible that most of them tend to get away with it though, the laws there are different!
