The second student of Tehran’s Amirkabir University suspiciously died this week due to alleged medical negligence.

The telegram channel of the Amir Kabir University said Yusef Sevizi, a mining engineering master's student suffered a cardiac arrest on Wednesday in the dormitory while the university authorities did not provide medical service.

On Wednesday last week, another student named Basir Ebrahimpour suffered a cardiac arrest and died in the Abureihan building of the university.

According to the channel, the emergency department of the university caused the death of these two students within a week by "failing to send medical staff and taking care of them in time".

Mohammad Shahriari, Head of Tehran's Criminal Affairs Prosecutor's Office, said Sweizi's body was transferred to the forensics department claiming the cause of his death will be announced after "toxicology and pathology tests".

Farsi media has speculated that the two were poisoned, but so far, there has been no confirmation.
