professor, police have failed to name any suspects or find any clues pointing
towards the killer, while city morgue officials have not conducted an autopsy

allegedly after an exchange of harsh words. Model Town Division Investigations
Wing Superintendent Rai Ijaz said they had recovered all college entry and exit
records, adding that they had also acquired a call log of the victim's mobile
