A rape accused committed suicide by jumping before a Metro train, said police, adding that he was depressed due to his marriage.
Manoj Kumar, 28, jumped in front of the train at the Chhatarpur Metro station Thursday night. He came under the wheels and lost both his legs. He later died in hospital.

Police said a suicide note was recovered in which Manoj wrote that he was depressed because of his wife.

According to a police officer, Manoj in April this year married a woman whom he and his friend had allegedly raped.


"Both the accused were arrested and sent to police custody. After getting bail, Manoj tied the knot with the woman but was not happy," his family members told police.

Manoj, who was employed in a transport company, lived in the Mehrauli area of south Delhi.
