A 67-year-old man on Saturday allegedly committed suicide by jumping before a moving train at a Delhi Metro station, officials said.

They said the incident took place at 8 am at the Dwarka Sector-12 station when the man, identified as Deepak Chopra, jumped before the train.

The movement of the trains at the station was disrupted for a few minutes, the officials said.

The police was investigating the case and the possible reasons that led him to take the extreme, they said.
