A paranoid schizophrenic from Colindale has been locked up in a secure mental health unit indefinitely after he pushed a stranger in front of a train.
Devindra Ferguson, 29, of Parklea Close, attacked Kamlesh Ramj as he waited on a platform at Kentish Town station in December last year.
Mr Ramji suffered horrendous injuries and was in a coma for almost a month but miraculously survived.
He has since recovered.
