Iran, Dec. 29, 2018 - Students of the Science and Research University in Tehran, the capital of Iran, held a major rally on Saturday morning expressing their anger over Iranian regime authorities in this facility. The students were grieving the loss of their classmates killed in a recent bus accident and holding incompetent regime officials responsible for the incident.
The students were also heard chanting, “Velayati, resign, resign,” demanding the resignation of the representative of Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on their campus.
The students are also protesting measures by the Iranian regime aiming to cloak the role of the regime’s plundering mafias in this incident. One poster specifically read, “Expelling second-class officials in this university is a sign of the mullahs’ obscenity.”
A large number of college students took part in this rally while the Iranian regime had taken measures to station repressive security units on campus and nearby areas to keep the rally under control. Prior to this, the mullahs’ regime had dispatched anti-riot units to create a climate of fear at the capital’s Science and Research University.
A bus carrying students of Tehran’s Science and Research Center in Azad University, unfortunately, tipped over, leaving nine students dead and 27 others injured. Head of the Iranian regime’s emergency services said this incident took place at 12:20 pm local time on Tuesday, December 25.
Following this horrific incident, Iranian authorities first dispatched anti-riot units to the scene in fear of possible outbursts of anger turning into anti-regime protests. Families of the university students were seen outside the campus seeking information about their loved ones.
The bus brakes were malfunctioning, leading to this tragic incident, according to a number of the students interviewed after the accident. This shows how regime officials care nothing about people’s safety and continue using such buses to transfer students to and from the campus.
It is worth noting that the deputy university dean first claimed the driver had suffered a heart attack in an attempt to cover up the brake failures.
However, a spokesperson for the Iranian regime’s Emergency Organization said the claim of the driver suffering a heart attack is not confirmed and the forensics must file a report on this matter.
Iran suffers from a significantly high rate of road accidents, with an estimated of at least 17,000 casualties every year. The toll is widely blamed on poor safety, the presence of older vehicles and the inadequacy of emergency services.
Iranian opposition President Maryam Rajavi sent a message of condolences to the families of those who lost their lives and hoping for a quick recovery of those injured.
“My heart goes out to the students who died in the bus accident. Deepest sympathies to their families and sincere prayers for the quick recovery of those injured. Shame on the corrupt mullah regime that plunders and spends on repression by the billions but leaves roads unattended.
