Cop commits suicide by jumping before Metro train
New Delhi: A 52-year-old Delhi Police assistant sub-inspector allegedly committed suicide by jumping before a Metro train in Uttam Nagar on Wednesday, police said. The deceased was undergoing treatment. A suicide note was found from the possession of the deceased. In the note, he mentioned that he was committing suicide because of his illness.
Police said that the deceased identified as Hans Ram Barla, was a resident of Uttam Nagar and had told his family members that he was going for some work. When he did not get back home after quite some time, the family members called them to enquire where he was but all their calls went unanswered. The incident was reported from Uttam Nagar (West) Metro Station around 11.15 am.
Meanwhile, one of them informed his family members, whose numbers he had stated in the suicide note that was kept in the left pocket of his pants. Family members first went to the Metro station from where they were directed to the hospital where they were informed about his death. Police said that the man's body was handed over to the family members after post-mortem.
Sources claimed that he was seen wandering around the track and after few minutes he jumped to death. Barla is survived by two sons and a daughter. The Metro services were disrupted on the Blue Line for few minutes.
The suicide note claimed that he was fed up of medication and he was committing suicide because of the same. "He was detected with stomach TB from three months back and was undergoing treatment. He was not on active duty and was on medical leave for more than three weeks," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (metro) Pankaj Kumar Singh.
