NEW DELHI: Delhi Police on Sunday saved a 42-year-old man from ending his life by jumping from a flyover in South Delhi’s Kotla Mubarakpur.

The police reacted to a tweet that showed the man standing on the railing of a flyover, and without wasting time, saved him before he could take the drastic step.

The man works for an online food delivery portal and was planning to end his life following financial struggles, senior police officers said.

The matter came to light around 6 pm, when Congress functionary Alka Lamba tweeted a video showing a man standing on the railing of a flyover in Andrews Ganj area.

The station house officer of Kotla Mubarakpur police station rushed to the spot along with his patrolling team and beat staff.

“The team found that one male person aged about 40 years was standing near the flyover iron railing preparing to jump. He was also loudly saying that he is disappointed in his life and wanted to end it. The police team tried to pacify him. Meanwhile, a team was deployed under the flyover with a net to save the man from hitting the ground in case he jumped,” said deputy commissioner of police (south) Atul Thakur.

“Our team members on the flyover cleverly engaged him in talks, inched closer to him and managed to catch him before he could react. He was then brought down from the flyover. During questioning, he disclosed his identity as a resident of Almorah, Uttarakhand. He was later handed over to his relative,” the officer said.
