A Jewish man dating the daughter of a member of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard was murdered, an Israeli television station reported.

Daniel Magrufta, 24, the son of a well-known Iranian businessman and a member of one of the wealthiest Jewish families in Iran, was killed last week in Tehran, Israel's Channel 2 reported Wednesday. 

The Jewish community reportedly believes he was murdered because of his relationship with the Iranian woman, but Iranian authorities say he was killed during a robbery.

At the end of November, a Jewish woman in the central Iranian city of Isfahan was murdered in what is believed to be a religiously motivated attack.
