Kolkata: Metro rail service in Kolkata has been disrupted as a man committed suicide at Rabindra Sarovar station on Wednesday evening. According to reports, a nearly 30 year-old man jumped in front of a metro train when metro was arriving at Rabindra Sarovar station, at around 5:10 pm.

Following the incident, metro service has been stopped between Mahanayak Uttam Kumar (Tollygunge) and Maidan stations. Metro railway officials said that the man was killed on spot and has been stuck underneath the train.
