New Delhi, Jan 4 : Annoyed and depressed due to his wife’s extra-marital affairs, a senior citizen on Thursday committed suicide by jumping before a Delhi Metro train here, police said.

The police said the incident took place at around 3.20 p.m. at GTB Nagar Metro station when a senior citizen — later identified as Banarsi Dass, 60 — jumped before the train at Platform No.1.

“Banarsi Dass, a resident of Adarsh Nagar, was taken to Babu Jagjivan Ram Memorial Hospital, where he was declared dead,” a senior police officer told IANS.

A suicide note was recovered from his pocket, in which it was written that he was not happy with his life and annoyed with his wife’s affairs for the last few weeks, the officer said.

“His body has been handed over to the family after the postmortem examination,” he said, adding that the police were trying to ascertain whether he had gone to the station with someone or alone.
