Man kills self by jumping before train at Adarsh Nagar metro station

Thursday, 12 September 2019 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

A 55-year-old man allegedly committed suicide by jumping in front of a running train at Delhi Metro's Adarsh Nagar station on Tuesday, leading to brief delay in services on Yellow Line. The Yellow Line connects Samyapur Badli in Delhi to Huda City Centre in Gurugram.

The deceased has been identified as Anil Gupta, a resident of Majlis Park area. According to a senior police official, the incident took place around 2.45 pm.

"A police control room (PCR) call was received at around 3 PM that an unidentified man had jumped in front of a metro train at platform No 1 of the station following which an Emergency Response vehicle (ERV) was dispatched for the spot.

"The victim had died on the spot. He jumped in front of train which was going towards Huda city Centre. However, no suicide note was found," said the senior police official.  The incident happened a day after World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10) which seeks to bring awareness on the issue in order to provide worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicides.

As part of an ongoing campaign by Delhi Metro to raise awareness about sound mental health, the authorities on Tuesday had installed a hoarding at the Patel Chowk metro museum to encourage people to brave through psychologically difficult period instead of giving up on life.
