At 7:35 am, he went to the Azadpur metro station to board a train towards Vishwavidyalaya and jumped on the tracks as the train approached.
The incident was caught on camera. “The shift in charge, station controller and the CCTV observer rushed to the platform to rescue him. The housekeeping, DMRC and CISF staff took him to Aruna Asaf Ali hospital but he was declared dead on arrival. He died on the spot due to excessive blood loss and head injuries. His postmortem was conducted later in the day and the body was handed over to his family members,” a police officer said.
Prasad, hailing from Nepal, mentioned in his note that he had been working for the same employer for the past 15 years and that he tortured him mentally.
“He worked with a gas agency and had been working for the same employer for the past several years. The suicide note mentions the name of his employer. Though he wrote the employer harassed him, he has not mentioned any specific instance that may have prompted him to end his life,” a police officer said.
The police have not registered a case of abetment to suicide in the matter. “We have initiated an inquiry into the suicide and will investigate the matter. We will definitely look into the allegations and claims made in the suicide note. We will record statements of his family to know if he shared anything with them,” a police officer said.
