Fatality at Turnham Green Station
Police are appealing for information after man hit by Piccadilly line train
A man was killed by a train at Turnham Green Station last week after a witness saw him climb down onto the line just before a Piccadilly line train passed through the station.
47 year old Iqbal Malik was a broadcast engineer from Heston. His family dispute the police's belief that he committed suicide. A woman was killed at the same station in December 2001 attempting to retrieve a mobile phone that she had dropped on the tracks. Concerns have been expressed in the past about the combination of narrow platforms in the station and the fast pace at which non-stopping Piccadilly line trains pass through.
The incident occured on Friday 27th June at 1.50pm. If you have any information regarding this incident could you please contact the British Transport Police on 020 7391 5275 (24hrs).
All information treated in confidence.
