In March 1955 he was jailed and tortured. Two things kept him alive while he was prisoned; his mother and his close friend Morteza Keyvan who was executed. Shahrokh Meskoob was released in May 1957. From 1959 until the 1979 Iranian revolution, he worked for different government sectors.

After the revolution, he moved to Europe and spent most of his time with his sister in France. He died on April 12, 2005 in Paris, aged 81.
