NEW DELHI: An unidentified woman allegedly committed suicide by jumping in front of a moving train at the Chhatarpur metro station on Saturday evening.

According to ANI, the traffic on Delhi Metro`s Yellow Line was briefly disrupted for some time due to the incident.

"A woman passenger allegedly jumped in front of an approaching train at Chhatarpur station around 4 pm resulting in a minor delay in the onward journey of the Metro. The services resumed in a few minutes after the incident," the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said in a statement.

The woman`s identity could not be ascertained since no identification paper were found on her, a Metro official said. 

The Yellow Line connects Samaypur Badli in Delhi to HUDA City Centre in the neighbouring city of Gurgaon.

In a similar incident, a man had allegedly attempted suicide by jumping in front of approaching metro train at the Mandi House.
