Majid Moghadam, Civil rights activist, was taken to solitary confinement in notorious ward-240 due to his hunger strike which is started on 6 April 2015.

He has reportedly begun a hunger strike in order to protest his unjust verdict and inhumane condition in Evin prison. The hunger strike started due to unfair sentence and excruciating life in the prison such as overcrowding of prisoners in ward eight and lack of adequate food both quantity-quality.

Majid who is one of the victims and detainees of Kahrizak has been arrested by Revolutionary Guards officials on 3 Dec 2014, in the future, he was convicted to six years imprisonment by Revolutionary Court of Tehran.

He was accused of the charge of propaganda against the regime of Iran, illegally way-out of the borders and lack of Military Service ID.

Officials have apparently seized the personal belongings as a satellite receiver, flash memory, some books and CDs during the raid at his father house.

Majid had been previously arrested during the unrest after the presidency election in 2009 by plainclothes officials (Basiji) that as a witness of horrible occurrences in Kahrizak has unfolded the details regarding the cruel repressions by officials and plainclothes against demonstrators through his testimony.

He had previously been kept a 2-Alef Sepah ward of Evin prison at the beginning of his detention.

Reports of rights groups confirm that over 25 political prisoners  have deliberately  been held at ward 8 as these prisoners have purportedly been abused and harassed by those prisoners who have had accused of committing offences such as rubbery, murdering and possession of narcotics.
