A Baha'i in Bojnord, North Korasan province, Sholeh Sanai, and her two sons, Shayan and Faran, were arrested at 3pm on the afternoon of July 13, 2022, after security agents raided their homes. The agents searched their homes, seized laptops, mobile phones and books regarding the Baha'i faith. Another unidentified individual, believed to be connected to Iran's clerical establishment, entered the Sanai's place of business (a cosmetics store adjacent to their homes) and seized a large number of items before sealing the store.

No further information is available at this time about the whereabouts of these three Baha'is or of the charges against them.
