A woman, who jumped to death from the Punjabi Bagh Metro station on Monday, was identified as a 22-year-old Delhi University (DU) student, the police said on Tuesday.

According to sources in the police department, the victim has been identified as Bhavna. Her father, an accountant with a private firm, was in Haridwar when she took the extreme step.

"The reasons for her taking the step are not known," said a senior police officer investigating the incident.

The police said the victim, a resident of Aman Vihar, went to the Metro station, climbed the railing and then jumped to death from a height of more than 40ft.

She was pursuing graduation through correspondence.

"We did not find any note from her possession. She was identified with the help of her personal belongings," said the officer.
