Russian media: Daughter of Iranian ambassador committed suicide

After the death of Arefeh Sanaei, the daughter of Iran’s ambassador to Russia, the Iranian embassy announced her cause of death as a brain hemorrhage. But the Russian media announced the 28-year-old’s cause of death as a suicide.

The embassy's statement was issued after a local TV station reported that the ambassador’s daughter had fallen from a ninth-floor window on a Renault car and died.

Interfax news agency reported on Tuesday from reliable sources that the daughter of the Iranian ambassador was suffering from depression and was using anti-depression medication that was prescribed to her by Iranian doctors. According to the report, Sanaei never visited a Russian doctor regarding her depression.

The “112 Telegram” channel in Russia wrote that her body was found outside her apartment in Moscow. The Russian Ren TV also released a video on the subject and claimed that it shows the scene where Sanaee fell out of her residential apartment. There are traces of blood on the pavement in the video and it shows a large dent on a car that was parked there.

Crime Russia website also reported that Sanaei lived in Russia and Iran and had arrived in Moscow 4 months ago.

The police did not find a suicide note in her apartment.
