Man attempts suicide at Metro station
New Delhi, May 5 (IANS) A 55-year-old retired government employee was critically injured Saturday after he attempted to commit suicide by jumping in front of a Delhi Metro train at the INA station here, officials said. This was the third such incident in three days.
Mohan Jagtiani, who was a clerk in the tourism ministry, jumped on to the track as the Jahangirpuri-bound Metro train was entering the station around 12.11 p.m.
"The driver applied emergency brakes as the man jumped from the platform," a Metro spokesperson told IANS.
Though the train stopped short of Jagtiani, he received serious head injuries due to his jump.
He was rushed to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) trauma centre where his condition is stated to be critical.
No suicide note was recovered from Jagtiani's possession and police are yet to ascertain the reason behind his extreme step.
Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Railways) B.S. Gurjar told IANS that Jagtiani, who lives at 130, Gautam Nagar in south Delhi's Yusuf Sarai area, ran a travel agency named Mohan Travels from Laxmibai Nagar after his retirement.
This is the third such incident on the Delhi Metro in the last three days.
A 28-year-old woman died Thursday after jumping off a Gurgaon Metro station. Another woman committed suicide by jumping off an elevated Metro station in west Delhi's Kirti Nagar Friday.
