Sussex graduate dies after being hit by train

A University of Sussex graduate has died after being struck by an underground train.

Yesterday tributes poured in for “awesome” Jaamit Durrani who studied English and developmental studies at the university between 2000 and 2003 before moving to work at internet companies in Brighton and Worthing.

Friends of Mr Durrani, who was killed instantly after being struck by a Central line tube at Tottenham Court Road station at 3.35pm on Thursday,remembered him as “a lovely man”.

Between November 2007 and January 2009 Mr Durrani, who is in his 20s, worked at Worth Digital Media in Middle Street, Brighton.

John Worth, who runs the company, remembered Mr Durrani as a “rising star” who was “ready to take on the world”.

A BTP spokeswoman said the incident was not being treated as suspicious.

Jaamit was a great guy who was very active in many communities during his time at University, including the Colombia and Palestine solidarity movements. He went on to run in the 2005 General Election for the Tottenham constituency, gathering 263 votes. Our thoughts go to his family.
