A prisoner held at Ward 3-4 of Orumiyeh Central Prison on financial and drug-Related charges has died from cardiac arrest, local sources told the KHRN.

Dariush Kangarlu, a 65-year-old civilian from Orumiyeh serving a ten-year sentence, died after he had spent over two years in the prison, sources said.

 “The inmate’s death came after a medical examiner in Orumiyeh confirmed he was unable to serve a prison sentence due to a history of illness and heart surgery,” a source told KHRN
