A 25-year-old married woman from Delhi allegedly killed herself by jumping in front of a metro train at a Yellow Line station on Friday, officials said.
The incident, which delayed the services on the busy corridor for some time, took place at Adarsh Nagar metro station in the morning, according to a senior DMRC official.
The woman, identified as Anita, got hit by the train that was going towards Vishwavidyalaya Station from Jahangirpuri station.
