A 24-year-old woman committed suicide on Monday morning by leaping off an elevated metro station here onto the road below, police said.

Karishma Narang, a teacher in a private school, jumped down onto the road from east Delhi's Preet Vihar metro station around 8am.

She was found near metro pillar number 95 and was rushed to a nearby hospital, where doctors declared her dead.

"No suicide note was recovered from her possession. Initial investigation reveals love angle behind her extreme step. Further probe is on," said a police officer.

Narang left her east Delhi's Krishna Nagar residence to go to school, but jumped from the metro station.

Last week Aug 15, a 60-year-old man jumped onto the tracks of the Tilak Nagar metro station. The man was saved as the driver of the metro rail applied the emergency brakes in time.

Several suicide incidents have occurred at Kirti Nagar, Malviya Nagar, MG Road, Chandni Chowk and Sultanpur metro stations this year.
