Alireza Japalaghy, a popular Iranian parkour athlete and his stunt accomplice have been arrested by Tehran's cyber police for vulgar acts after a photo of the pair kissing on rooftops was posted on social media.
Prior to the arrest, Alireza said that he received a phone call from police asking him to appear before them. Alireza’s brother stated that the police arrived and took him.
Tehran police said their unconventional moves, which were contrary to custom and Sharia law led to their arrest, which has prompted other social media users to criticise Iran's strict laws.
