On Tuesday morning at Dwarka Mor Metro station, a 26-year-old woman jumped on the tracks to pick up Rs 2,000 note and narrowly escaped death despite going under a Metro train. Later, when the train departed from the station, the woman was rescued with minor injuries.
Officials said that the woman lay still between the tracks and the train passed over her.
According to CISF officers, the incident took place at around 10.30am.
The woman, a resident of Jharoda Kalan in the city, was taken to a hospital where she was asked to write a written apology by the CISF for creating disruption of services on the Delhi Metro’s Blue Line, officials said.
“As told by witnesses, the woman passenger, later identified as Chetna Sharma, got down on tracks. When she looked at the Metro train approaching her, she lay wedged between the tracks to save herself. As the public raised the alarm, the driver of the train stopped the train and the shift in-charge of the CISF and station controller also rushed to the spot,” a senior CISF officer said.
“The woman was allowed to go with her brother after giving us a written apology,” the officer said.
Services of the Blue Line metro were briefly affected due to the incident and soon restored to normal, he added.
