In a shocking incident, a 42-year-old man allegedly killed himself by jumping in front of approaching metro at the Ghitorni station on the Delhi Metro’s Yellow Line on Friday. The deceased has been identified as Nitin Chandok, a resident of C Block Saket, who worked at a private company.
It is still unclear whether the passenger accidentally fell on the tracks or attempted suicide by jumping in front of an oncoming Metro train. The metro corporation is yet to issue an official statement in this regard.
The incident led to delay in metro services on the Sultanpur-Huda City Centre section of the Yellow Line , DMRC officials said.
“Delay in services between Sultanpur and Huda City Centre due to a passenger on track at Ghitorni. Normal service on all other lines,” the DMRC tweeted soon after the incident. The normal services were resumed after 10-15 minutes delay, officials said.
With 37 stations, the Yellow Line connects Samaypur Badli in Delhi with Huda City Centre in Gurgaon. It is the third-longest metro line on the Delhi Metro network.
