In a statement posted on the Alborz website, which is closely linked to the powerful Iranian Revolutionary Guard, the group has quashed reports that one of its officials had been assassinated by two men on a motorbike:
“This statement denies all the news about assassinating one of our workers after a very sudden incident happened to him,” the Imam Hassan Mojtaba division of the Revolutionary Guards Corps said.
“We are investigating the incident and the intention of the attacker or attackers.” The Revolutionary Guards also issued a statement warning against prematurely assigning blame to anyone.
There was no confirmation of the person’s name or rank but confirmed he had been found dead near the town of Karaj, located in northwest of the country’s capital Tehran.
The statement comes 12 hours after first reports emerged in western media that the commander of Iran’s Cyber War Headquarters, Mojtaba Ahmadi had been assassinated after last being seen leaving his home on Saturday on his way to work.
