In the second incident, 42-year-old Vijay Gupta, a resident of Karol Bagh, jumped in front a moving train at Shastri Nagar station resulting in severe head injury.

"He jumped in front of the train moving between Dilshad Garden and Rithala at around 3 PM. The moving train hit him injuring him severely in head and both his arms," police said.

Police said the man, undergoing treatment at the Hindu Rao hospital, is in a critical condition.
