Two Questions for the Government

Regarding the incident in Yazd and the arrest of Colonel Mosavvar Rahmani, the honourable speaker of the National Assembly, I expect to be [informed] that the minister of the interior is to be present at the parliament to explain the following issue:

What is the reason that the Yazd gendarmerie has injured a bath-attender living in Poshtkuh of Yazd, which has provoked and incited the sentiments of the local Muslims, leading to the killing of several people? And [why,] after the escape of the perpetrators, were 63 innocent individuals arrested in a strange way and kept under pressure in the city prison of Yazd and they even refuse to allow the donations of the good-hearted people to reach them?
