In concurrence with instructions received from the Iranian National Gendarmerie [Police] regarding the request of the Baha’i residents of Boyer-Ahmad Sofla, who had moved to Margh, Isfahan, owing to disputes with locals from Bayer-Ahmad Sofla (jurisdiction of Behbahan Regiment), they now intend to return to their own residences.  Under the circumstances, so as to prevent unpredictable conflicts we have instructed that one Commissioned-officer and three Enlisted-officers of Behbahan Regiment be assigned to accompany them from Margh, Isfahan, to their villages.  Kindly issue appropriate instructions to the police stations along the way to cooperate.
