KARACHI: A suspected killer of Karachi University assistant professor Dr Syed Wahidur Rehman was released on Monday over lack of evidence.

An anti-terrorism court judge released the man identified as Samiuz Zaman after substantial evidence against him could not be found during investigations.

Earlier, Samiuz Zaman was remanded into police custody for 14 days as the investigation officer of the case contended that the suspect needed to be interrogated for the whereabouts of the other absconding suspects.

Dr Syed Waheedur Rehman was gunned down on April 29 near the Karachi Institute of Heart Diseases. Armed men riding a motorcycle fired four shots at Rehman and he received bullet wounds in the face, head and chest. The 42-year-old professor was in his Suzuki Cultus in Block 16 of FB area when he was gunned down.

The killing sparked a wave of protests by the academic and journalist fraternities who urged the authorities to take strict action against the assailants.
