We have obtained hard X-ray spectra of four luminous IRAS galaxies, which were selected on the basis of their optical polarized broad lines. We have found prominent Fe K line emission from IRAS 20210+1121, suggesting that its observed X-ray continuum is scattered emission from a completely blocked AGN. The X-ray-[OIII]λ5007 ratios of our sources are in the range of moderately or heavily absorbed Seyfert 2s.
