This is the latest in a string of suicides and attempt to suicides at Metro stations in the national capital. There have been a couple of instances of people jumping before trains to end their lives.

Since January, there have been at least three to four incidents of people trying to commit suicide by jumping before trains.

Delhi Metro has termed the recent spate of suicides on the Metro as extremely unfortunate.

"We appeal to all passengers to help us in curtailing this tendency. All passengers are requested to be alert at the platform when metro trains are approaching and stop any fellow passenger who attempts to cross the yellow line before the train comes to a complete halt," DMRC spokesman Anuj Dayal said.
