A 32-year-old man, who was allegedly attempting suicide, was on Monday saved by an alert CISF jawan at a Delhi Metro station, an official said.

The incident took place at the Rohini West station at about 3 pm when a man was witnessed by on-duty security personnel trying to leap from the elevated station towards the road below, he said.

“Constable P C Das immediately rushed and stopped the man from jumping. The man later told the security personnel that he was upset as he had a tiff with his wife and hence thought of attempting suicide,” a CISF spokesperson said.

The police have been informed about the incident, he said.
