Iranian security officials arrested two sisters from western Balochistan on Sunday, sources have reported.
According to reports, two sisters, Ghazal Pakzad and Rehana Pakzad, residents of western Balochistan, were detained by law enforcement agencies from Zahedan and shifted to an undisclosed location.
According to sources, the two detainees were shifted to an unknown location, while the profiles of their social media handles also changed after the arrest.
It is feared that both sisters were detained for posting content on their social media accounts in support of the recent anti-government protests in Iran, but there has been no response from Iranian authorities yet.
Dozens of people involved in the ongoing anti-government protests in Iran were detained in the past, according to human rights organizations. Iranian forces are targeting the citizens participating in the demonstrations.
Human rights groups claim that at least 14,000 people have been arrested since the protests began, while at least 458 people, including 63 children, have been killed.
In Iran, protests broke out across the country last year after the arrest and death of a Kurdish woman named Mahsa Amini by Iranian police.
