Plea to friends over Crouch Hill track tragedy
07:55 29 September 2012
A student who died after being hit by a train in Crouch Hill has been named, as officers appeal for help with piecing together his final movements.
Mohammad Ajmal, 29, was struck by an eastbound train just outside Crouch Hill station as it approached 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 and British Transport Police (BTP) officers are hunting for more information.
They are particularly keen to speak to friends who spoke to police at the time, but left without providing any contact details.
Gary Mathias, the 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.”
