New Delhi: A 42-year-old man allegedly committed suicide by jumping in front of a train at the Ghitorni station on the Delhi Metro's Yellow Line, leading to brief delay in services, on Friday, officials said.
The Yellow Line connects Samaypur Badli in Delhi to HUDA City Centre in Gurgaon.
The deceased, Nitin Chandok, was a resident of Saket, police said.
"Police received information about the incident at 11.55 am. The reason behind him committing suicide is not known and no suicide note was found," Deputy Commissioner of Police (Metro) Vikram Porwal said.

"Delay in services between Sultanpur and Huda City Centre due to a passenger on track at Ghitorni. Normal service on all other lines," it tweeted soon after the incident.
Normal services were resumed after 10 to 15 minutes of delay, the officials said.
