Hyderabad: A man attempted suicide by jumping from the Chaitanyapuri Metro station on Saturday. Gravely injured, his identity is still unknown and he is undergoing treatment at Osmania General Hosp-ital, said the Saroornagar police.

A man climbed the stairs, reached the concourse level of the metro station and jumped down. Security personnel rushed him to Osmania General Hospital.

 

A complaint received by the Saroornagar police said the controller of the metro station, Mr Hari Krishna Reddy, noticed a person at the concourse level jumping off. “Though other staff noticed the person and shouted, he did not stop and jumped from the Arm-B side,” the complaint stated.

Saroornagar sub-inspector G. Manmadha Kumar said no one had approached the police regarding the victim.

HMRL managing director N.V.S. Reddy said, “A person in tattered clothes, in a highly inebriated condition jumped down on to the road from Chaitanyapuri station concourse level in an attempt to commit suicide. He was taken to hospital by L&T staff and is being taken care of by doctors. He is safe and recovering.”

The incident highlights the lack of security and safety measures at the concourse level, which is accessible to the general public. Security is tighter only in the platform area.

When asked about the security measures taken to prevent such untoward incidents and entry of anti-social elements, HMRL MD NVS Reddy refused to respond.

There have been two incidents of people jumping off Metro Rail station. On the sixth of November, 2018, a woman attempted to jump off the Victoria Memorial station and on the eighth of November, 2018, a man jumped off the Ameerpet station and died.
