During the Shah’s regime’s activities against opposition groups, SAVAK discovered a group left in the city and arrested its members. By arresting the members of the city and interrogating them, SAVAK found out about the forest group and their plans. Despite the arrest of members of the city group and Hamid Ashraf’s proposal to postpone the operation, Safaei Farahani insisted on carrying out the operation on time, which was agreed. The group went to the mountains and prepared to attack. On Monday, the 9th of January, Hadi Bande khoda Langroudi was sent to go to the village of Shab Khasbolat and bring Iraj Nairi with him.
