A CISF official, who did not wish to be named, said the man was identified as Anil and had to go to Sector 16. He, however,  got down at Sector 15 Metro Station by mistake.

Wrong station
"When he realised that he had got off at the wrong Metro station, he jumped on the metro track and started running towards Sector 16 Metro station. Bystanders informed the CISF officials and Metro staff about the incident after which trains of both sides were stopped," the CISF official said.   

The man was detained by the CISF and was interrogated thoroughly. "Anil is a native of Bihar. He came to Delhi and had to go to Noida, Sector 16. During interrogation, he said he was unaware about the rules and therefore jumped on the track," the CISF official said.
