“When we went to identify her, they didn’t allow us to see her body, only her face for a few seconds,” her aunt told BBC Persian.

Her nose and skull were allegedly broken.

Her family retrieved her body and was planning to bury her in her father’s hometown of Khorramabad on what would have been her 17th birthday on Oct. 2.

They said authorities forced them into agreeing not holding a public funeral service for Shakarami.

Her body was then allegedly stolen by authorities and found buried 40 kilometers away in the town of Veysian.

Security forces have been known to use the bodies of victims to stop families from speaking up.

Since the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who died after she was arrested by “morality police” for allegedly breaking the country’s mandatory hijab law, women in Iran have been taking to the streets and holding massive protests.
