A man has been sentenced to have his eyes gouged out in Iran after damaging the sight of a man during a street fight, it has been reported.
The horrifying ‘eye for an eye’ sentence was handed down to a 27-year-old man, referred to only by his first name, Hamed.
It is punishment for unintentionally injuring a man’s eye during a brawl in March 2011, when he was just 23 years old.

According to the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), which translated the story from Iran’s official state-run newspaper, Hamad told the court: ‘It was around midnight and I was sitting at home when my mother called me and said that my father had gotten into a car accident.
‘I rushed to the scene to help my dad, but I really didn’t intend to injure anyone’s eye.’
He was sentenced to eye-gouging in the Iranian regime’s fundamentalist court on August 1.
Following the sentence, Farideh Karimi, a member of the NCRI and a human rights activist, said: ‘It is deeply regretful that European governments are not protesting such cases of barbarity in Iran.
‘These savage acts which constitute torture are enshrined in the Iranian regime’s laws.
‘There has been a steep rise in executions in Iran during (President) Hassan Rouhani’s tenure in the past two years.
‘In the past month alone the regime has carried out two hand amputations and issued a sentence for a person’s eyes to be gouged out.’
Yesterday, a man’s right hand and left foot were severed by the authorities, NCRI has claimed. A second prisoner is awaiting the same sentence imminently.
