Sikh held after British colleague's body found at his home

London, Jan 13 (IANS) A 49-year-old Sikh mathematics lecturer at Oxford University has been arrested after the body of a British colleague was found at his home.
The body of Steven Rawlings, a 50-year-old astrophysicist, was found at the home of Devinder Sivia in Oxfordshire Wednesday, the Daily Telegraph reported.
Sivia -- who lectures at St John's College -- was arrested from his bungalow in Southmoor Thursday and questioned by officers from Thames Valley Police.
He is a stipendiary lecturer in Mathematics for Sciences at Oxford University. He lectures to undergraduates studying chemistry and physics and has published two books.
Rawling's family, however, said they did not believe that Sivia could have murdered his friend and blamed the death on "a tragic accident".
Linda Davey, the 64-year-old elder sister of Rawling, said he was not the type of man to get into an argument over anything.
