This specific group came from revolutionary guards to crackdown some gangs savagely in public to instill fear among people. It was during the time that public opinion about Ahmadinejad's government and Islamic regime at whole came to the point that was possibility of uprising against the establishment.

Because they didn't want to identified, they had ski masks. This group is responsible for execution of many people in public.

Of course this video is old but still can give your readers a sense that how they would treat people.

I write in

This is from during Ahmadinejad's 2007 clapdown on "bad hijab" and "drug dealers". In cities like Tehran woman with loose hair coverings, boots, tight clothes and young men with long hair or Western haircuts were beaten and arrested.

There are lots of videos on YouTube showing these arrests and beatings. But this video is not current.
