Nayyar Perwez Shahabuddin, a professor of engineering at Columbia University in New York, was found dead November 17 in the vicinity of the campus. The cause of death is undetermined, though foul play is suspected and authorities are planning to perform an autopsy, friends of the family said.
Pervez, the only son of Syed Shahabuddin (ex-Member of Parliament & President, All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat), was 43 years old and had been teaching at the Ivy League University's Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research since 1995. A graduate of IIT Delhi and Stanford University, Pervez was given the 2004 Great Teacher Award given by the Society of Columbia Graduates in "recognition of your students and your peers as a dedicated and inspired undergraduate teacher and mentor."
Pervez is survived by his wife Soofia, and two children, Zoha, 9, and Zain, 5; five sisters and his parents.
Arrangements are being made to bring his body back to Delhi for burial, possibly on Nov. 20 or Nov. 21. For funeral arrangements, timings of
