A 34-year-old man died on Thursday when he jumped before a Delhi Metro train pulling out of a station, briefly affecting the train services, police said.

Desh Raj, a resident of Uttam Nagar in west Delhi, was an employee in a sweet shop.

The incident took place at the Uttam Nagar West Metro station. "No suicide note (was) recovered from his possession," a police officer said.

The incident took place at 12.16pm as the train was leaving towards Rajiv Chowk. There was a 10-minute delay in train services due to the incident, a Metro official said.
