New Delhi: A 21-year-old man was rescued by CISF personnel as he was allegedly attempting suicide at a Delhi Metro station here.

The incident occurred on January 9 at about 11:00 AM at the Preet Vihar station when a man was seen climbing the railing of the station in a bid to jump off on the road side to commit suicide, by an on-duty Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) official.
