Najafi's wife, Mitra Ostad, was found dead in the house on Tuesday morning and many chest pains were taken in the chest.

After a few hours, the former mayor turned himself into criminal police and acknowledged that he was his wife.

The killer has cited family problems for the murder.

67-year-old Najafi was elected leader of Tehran in August 2017, but in 2018 he was resigned due to poor health conditions.

Associated with "reformist" political parties, Najaf has served as Education Minister and Higher Education Minister in many administrations.

During the first tenure of President Hassan Rouhani, he took over the command of Iranian cultural heritage, craft, and tourism organization (ICHHTO), but resigned six months later.
