An NRI teacher, facing charges of sexually abusing a female student, allegedly committed suicide in London by throwing himself in front of a train.

Savraj Powar, 43, a father of two, had been suspended from his post at Lampton School in west London for "inappropriate conduct".

He was arrested by officers from the Metropolitan Police's child abuse unit on Tuesday at his Isleworth home.

Powar later drove to Osterley Tube station, walked onto the platform and was hit and killed by a train, police said on Saturday.

An inquest into the death was opened at Fulham coroner's court on Friday.
