New Delhi: A 76-year-old man committed suicide on Monday by jumping in front of a Metro train at the Welcome Metro station in east Delhi, affecting train services for about half an hour, authorities said. The man has been identified as Khairaiti Lal, a resident of Panchsheel Garden in Shahdara area. Police said that the man was suffering from depression and was undergoing treatment for the last 3-4 months.
