Ahmad Ahmadi (Persian: احمد احمدی; 1885–1944), known as Pezeshk Ahmadi meaning Doctor Ahmadi, was born in Mashhad to Mohammad Ali Ahmadi. He was an uneducated man who worked as a nurse in different hospitals.
While he was employed at Tehran's Qasr prison, he was ordered to kill numerous political prisoners. Many political prisoners died under his notorious air injections. Some of the more famous were Mirza Mohammad Farrokhi Yazdi, Abdolhossein Teymourtash, Sardar As'ad and his brother Khānbābā Khān As'ad, Taghi Arani, and Ayatollah Mirza Mohammad Najafi Khorasani (Ayatollah Aghazadeh).
When the allies stormed into Iran in 1941, Rezā Shāh of the Pahlavi Dynasty was overthrown, and the judiciary, headed by Jalāl Abdeh, under popular pressure, was appointed to take many infamous figures such as Ahmadi to trial for their notorious crimes during the first Pahlavi era.
Trial and execution
After being released from exile in 1941, Iran Teymourtash travelled to Iraq and succeeded in arranging for Ahmadi's extradition to Iran on charges that he had killed her father, Abdolhossein Teymourtash.
Ahmadi, along with Sarpās Mokhtār (Central Police Chief), Mostafā Rāsekh, and Hosein Niroumand, were arrested and sentenced for crimes committed during Rezā Shāh's arbitrary reign.
