Answer
Dear Mojtaba

For a moment free connection you should bend lower and higher reinforcement to make sure all bars passing  and interconnecting on  a straight line ( moment release in one rotation direction) or an  almost single point ( moment release in 2 rotation directions.

Please don't hesitate to ask me further.
