"The man has been released because there has not been enough evidence against him to justify keeping him behind bars," said his lawyer, Philipp Winkler.
Three other suspects, including the alleged mastermind of the attack in which Dera Sachh Khand leader Guru Ramanand Dass was killed, while Sant Niranjan Dass was severely injured, will remain in custody for the time being, while a decision on two other suspects would be taken next week, police said.
The ringleader of the attack, who sustained a gunshot wound in his head, is in police custody in an artificially induced coma in a Vienna hospital.
The body of Sant Ramanand was flown back in a special chartered flight sent by the government of India and was cremated early this week.
Investigators probing the incident at Ravi Dass Gurdwara near the Westbahnhof railway station on May 24, have secured over 300 pieces of forensic evidence, which means it could take months before the first results of the investigation are disclosed, police said.
The incident had sparked off violent clashes in Punjab and Haryana between followers of different sects.
A violent clash between two groups of the community at a gurdwara in Vienna's 15th district had led to the death of 57-year old Sant Ramanand, and injuries to 15 others.
Four of the six offenders were NRI asylum seekers living in Austria and have been identified Satwinder Singh, 28, Jaspal Singh, 34, Tasum Singh, 45 and Sukhwinder Singh, 28. The other two attackers - Hardeep Singh, 33 and Charnjit Singh, 24, entered Austria illegally, authorities said.
