Tehran, Dec. 5 – Students from Payam University in the north eastern Iranian town of Nayshabour demonstrated outside the main university gate in protest to government crackdown.

Students also complained about the lack of welfare opportunity and the quality of teaching.

Demonstrators issued a statement, which called for an independent university management committee without government interference. Students also demanded university equipment of a higher standard specifically requesting internet access.

Last month, two students were flogged in public in the centre of Nayshabour for ‘disrupting public order’. One of them was sentenced to three years imprisonment, 70 lashes and a fine, and the other received 50 lashes.
