A student who died after being hit by a train near Crouch Hill station has been named, as officers appeal for help piecing together his final movements.
Mohammad Ajmal, 29, was struck by an eastbound train as it approached the Overground line station from Upper Holloway on Tuesday, September 4. His death was reported at 5.24am and is being treated as non-suspicious.
Little is known about the incident, or Mr Ajmal’s life. British Transport Police (BTP) officers are hunting for more information and have yet to establish where he was living and studying.
They have released this image of Mr Ajmal at Crouch Hill station, and are particularly keen to speak to friends of his who gave evidence at the time, but didn’t leave any contact details.
Gary Mathias, BTP coroners liaison officer, said: “Although we’re not holding a criminal inquiry, we’re conducting a thorough investigation as part of the file we must prepare for the coroner.
“Mr Amjal was originally from Pakistan and had been in the country for a few months, having come to London to study business and finance.
“We’re eager to talk to his friends in the area because they may be able to help our investigation. I would like to emphasise that they are not in any trouble, but that we need to speak to them because they could assist our enquiries in piecing together Mr Ajmal’s final movements.”
Mr Mathias continued: “The inquest into Mr Ajmal’s death is due to take place later this year.
“We’d like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time, or who has any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, so we can build a clearer picture of what took place.”
Anyone with information about the incident should contact BTP free on 0800 40 50 40 quoting reference B6/LNA of 19/9/2012.
