New Delhi: A 23-year-old civil services aspirant allegedly attempted suicide by jumping in front of a Metro train at Karol Bagh station on Monday morning, the police said.

The incident took place at 9.30 am on the Blue Line when the man allegedly jumped in front of a Noida-bound train as it was approaching the platform, a senior officer said.

 

He sustained a head injury and is presently kept under observation at Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital. The man, a native of Mumbai, was preparing for the civil services and was living with his friend in East Delhi’s Nirman Vihar, the officer said.

“There was a case of attempted suicide at Karol Bagh Metro station as a train, heading towards Noida at 9.30 am, approached the platform,” a senior DMRC official said.

According to him, Metro services were briefly affected. Earlier on Saturday, a 57-year-old deputy manager at a State Bank of India branch allegedly jumped in front of a Metro at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium Metro station. The man sustained minor injuries.

 

“As soon the Metro operator saw him, he applied the brakes and the man was saved. He sustained a few external injuries on his chest and hands,” the officer added.

The man was immediately rescued by the officers deployed at the station.
