No leads in FCCU professor's murder
Lahore: Almost two days after the murder of a Forman Christian College University (FCCU) 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 yet.

Late on Thursday night, police filed a case against two unidentified killers who escaped after killing the professor in his own drawing room, 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 phone. He said that the deceased had owned a plot in Johar Town, which had become the object of dispute after its sale.

Contradiction: A police official, requesting anonymity, claimed that the police had investigated the security guards at the FCCU. He said that the security guards contradicted the statement of the son, Shakir, who claimed that he had chased the murderers. He said that the killers had most likely entered through the front gate and escaped through back alleys. Police investigators have found that the sweets that the killer brought were purchased from a well-known bakery with CCTV surveillance, he said, adding the police were trying to identify potential suspects from the video.

Denies: The professor's son, who was the only eyewitness to the crime, denied comment, saying police officials had cautioned him against discussing the case. Police officials said that the deceased would be laid to rest on Sunday upon the arrival of some of his relatives to the country. Daily Times
