Six More Students Studying in Fourth year of Medicine Were Expelled from Shiraz University.

Shiraz – Kayhan Reporter – Subsequent to the dismissal of 37 students in their fourth year of medicine from Shiraz University a couple of days ago, during the second round, and following more investigation into the [students’] records, six other students were expelled from the university and were denied the opportunity to register.  Thus, out of 121 students studying in the fourth year of medicine at Shiraz University, only 78 could continue their studies.

The spokesperson of the Academic Jihad of Shiraz, while announcing this news, added that the Registration Council had overseen the process of the registration of the fourth year students, and, during two stages, had dismissed a total of 43 students who were guilty of being members of the perverted sect of Baha’ism, or being members of Monafegh[1] groups, or being morally perverted, and denied them registration.
