A 22-year-old woman jumped to her death at a metro station in south Delhi's Malviya Nagar on Sunday morning, police said. This is the sixth such incident since January this year.
Sudha (name changed), a second-year correspondence student of Delhi University (DU), jumped in front of a coach as it pulled in at platform number II at the Malviya Nagar metro at 11:15 am, police sources claimed.
“A suicide note was recovered from the victim; she has taken complete responsibility for her extreme action and attributed it to frustration,” said Bhairon Singh Gurjar, additional DCP (railways).
According to police, the four line suicide note stated that Sudha loved her family a lot and that those investigating her death should neither hold them accountable nor harass them in any measure.
Hailing from Bihar, the victim was a resident of south Delhi's Ghitorni where she used to stay at her elder sister and brother-in-law's residence.
“The medical staff at the metro station administered her aid before she was rushed to Trauma Centre at AIIMS where doctors pronounced her dead,” said an officer.
This was the sixth such incident since January. The authorities — both the Metro and the Delhi Police were — on the defensive after the incident.
“The suicides are unfortunate. All passengers are requested to be on alert when metro trains approach and stop any fellow passenger who attempts to cross the yellow line before the train comes to a complete halt,” said Anuj Dayal, Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO), DMRC
