Shiraz – Kayhan reporter – The Shiraz University Admission Council declined registration of 37 students in the Faculty of Medicine due to their group affiliation and moral corruption.

A session of the Shiraz University Admission Council convened and, following proper investigation regarding registration of fourth-year medical students, initially decided to expel 37 fourth-year medical students of Shiraz University from registering due to their group affiliations, affiliation with the perverse Baha’i sect and moral corruption.
