Despite the efforts of a teacher who provided CPR after he collapsed, Wali has pronounced dead in hospital shortly after.
A murder investigation has been launched. Munira Wilson, Twickenham’s MP, said police, who were yet to make any arrests, were “pursuing a key suspect who is still at large.”
A relative of Wali’s, from Stanmore, told the Evening Standard that Wali came to the UK alone two years ago to pursue a better life, leaving his family behind in Afghanistan.
His friend Sahil Kochay said: “He was a very good person. Very caring and loved everyone. He didn’t hold any hate towards anybody. He used to stand up for everyone. I wish I knew why someone would hurt him. He wasn’t the kind of guy to fight.”
A witness told the Evening Standard: “There was a teacher in a rugby kit; he was trying to save the boy. He was giving CPR. There were two girls next to him; they were crying. He was a real hero; it was a terrible scene. Five minutes before the incident, a group of boisterous kids came along heading to the field. The next thing we knew, all hell let loose.”
DCI Vicky Tunstall said: “We are still working to establish the motive behind this tragic attack and are following several leads. Officers had recovered CCTV from the area and spoken to several witnesses who described seeing a fight in the moments before Hazrat was attacked. We know a lot of people were on the field at the time, and I’d urge anyone who has not yet spoken to police to contact us immediately.”
Wilson offered her “deepest condolences” to Wali’s family after the “tragic and shocking incident.” The Lib Dem MP said: “The police are pursuing a key suspect who is still at extensive and forensic searches are ongoing at the site of the crime. The field and access to the railway bridge via Twickenham Rough remain closed off and sealed for at least the next 48 hours.
“The police have significantly stepped up patrols in the area and will continue to do so for the next few days. I have urged them to continue doing so beyond this week. The college’s security team is also patrolling the area more intensively.
“I will be reiterating my calls to the mayor of London and the Home Office to boost local police numbers.”
