The explosion took place near the professor’s home in Gheytarieh neighborhood, in northern Tehran.
Iran’s police and security bodies are investigating the terrorist case to identify those behind it.
Press TV correspondent Amir Mehdi Kazemi, reporting from the scene of the assassination, quoted security officials as saying that the equipment and system of the bomb used in the attack had been related to a number of foreign intelligence agencies, particularly Israel’s Mossad.
Meanwhile, Tehran’s Prosecutor Abbas Jafari-Dolatabadi confirmed the assassination of the university lecturer on Tuesday morning and said that he taught neutron nuclear physics at the University of Tehran.
“No suspect has been arrested yet,” he told the Iranian Students News Agency.
He added that Ali-Mohammadi was killed when a motorbike parked near his car exploded.
In December, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast said Tehran had information that authorities in Riyadh had delivered Amiri to the United States.
He added that Amiri is among eleven Iranian nationals held in detention in US prisons.
It seems the kidnap and assassination of Iranian scientists is on the agenda of the United States.
