Miranda House student attempts to kill self
Hours after her low performance in the practical exams, a 20-year-old BSc final year student of Miranda House College, tried to allegedly commit suicide by jumping in front of a Metro train at Indraprastha Metro station on Thursday afternoon.
The victim has been identified as Anuradha who is a resident of Noida. Her condition is stated to be critical as she received severe injuries on her head and back. However, her timely admission to the hospital had saved her life, doctors told police. At the time of the incident, she was standing at platform number one at Indraprastha Metro station. The moment the metro heading towards Yamuna Bank station entered the platform, she jumped in front of the train and the driver applied emergency brakes. By that time, she had come under the Metro coach but escaped being on the lines of the track. Rather, she fell in the middle of the two lines of the track and got hit by the Metro before she fell unconscious.
The incident took place at around 2.20 pm. She was immediately rushed to LNJP hospital where she is undergoing treatment. “No suicide note has been recovered from her possession, but during investigation it came to light that on Thursday there was a practical examination in the college. She had prepared well for the examination but could not perform up to the mark,” Jitendra Mani,
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Metro) said.
