A minicab driver who killed a pizza delivery driver in Maida Vale has been given a six month suspended sentence, after a sentencing at the Old Bailey last week.
Rakin Ahmed, 23, of Trinity Close in Leytonstone was found guilty of causing the death of 24-year-old Iqbal Faizurrahman by careless driving after a collision in 2016.
An investigation established Ahmed was travelling on Shirland Road approaching the junction with Sutherland Avenue when he turned right, directly into the path of Iqbal who was travelling in the opposite direction.
Iqbal’s moped collided with the front of Ahmed’s vehicle throwing him from the bike. Iqbal died at the scene.
Ahmed was found guilty on Thursday May 24 and sentenced at the Old Bailey on Friday May 25 to six months’ imprisonment, suspended for 18 months.
