London, Apr 28 (ANI): As part of a new drive to enforce Islamic dress code, Iran has warned that suntanned women who looked like "walking mannequins" would be arrested.

Brig Hossien Sajedinia, Tehran's police chief, said: "The public expects us to act firmly and swiftly if we see any social misbehaviour by women, and men, who defy our Islamic values.

"In some areas of north Tehran we can see many suntanned women and young girls who look like walking mannequins.

"We are not going to tolerate this situation and will first warn those found in this manner and then arrest and imprison them."

Iran's law insists on women wearing headscarves and shape shrouding cloaks but many women splash out a lot of money on fashions that barely adhere to the regulations, reports The Telegraph. (ANI)
