A man’s body who appeared to be in his mid-twenties was recovered from the metro tracks near Sector 16 Metro station in Noida early Saturday, the police said.

The police said the identity of the deceased is yet to be established as they could not find any identity card or document from the body.

The body was spotted around 5.30am by a train operator, on way to New Delhi from Noida City Centre Metro station. The operator immediately informed the security agency, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF).

The man was rushed to a hospital where doctors declared him as brought dead. A spokesperson for CISF said, “We scanned the CCTV camera footage and it showed that the man got down at 10.50pm at the Sector 15 Metro station from the City Centre-bound train. For three minutes, he was on the platform and then he jumped on the tracks and started walking towards the Sector 16 Metro station.”

An inquiry has been initiated into the issue to ascertain the sequence of events by which the man remained inside the station and walked on the tracks without any disturbance.

Senior superintendent of police (city), Arun Singh, told media persons that they recovered a phone from the body but it did not have a SIM card.

“No one has come forward (to identify the body) and we have also failed to identify it. We will wait for 72 hours and then send the body for a post-mortem examination. We are hopeful that the phone will give us a clue about his identity,” Arun Singh said.

He also said that the police stations have been alerted to check complaints of missing persons.

Sources in Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said that after the man started heading towards the Sector 16 Metro station, three trains had moved from Noida to New Delhi. He is likely to have jumped in front of the last train, according to the sources.
