Karaj, Chalus Road

Passengers travelling on the Karaj-Chalus road in the summer of 1988 saw three white refrigerated trucks plugged in at the mortuary of the Beylagan cemetery over consecutive nights, with engines running and lights on. When they asked, they were told the trucks carried the bodies of martyrs from the war. The passengers said that, a few days later when they were on their way back, the trucks had gone.

Political prisoners who survived the 1988 massacre in the Gohardasht Prison of Karaj reported that the corpses of the prisoners who had been hanged were thrown into the refrigerated trucks and transported out of the prison.

The testimonies of the passengers and the survivors strongly suggest that prisoners executed in Gohardasht Prison were buried in the desert around Beylagan cemetery on the Chalus road.
