NATIONAL | March 13, 2019:

A 26-year-old woman jumped on the tracks to pick up a Rs 2,000 note and narrowly escaped death despite going under a Metro train on Tuesday morning at Dwarka Mor Metro station.

Officers said that two coaches of an approaching Metro passed over her as she lay still between the tracks. The woman then came out safely after the train stopped. She was briefly detained by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) and was let off after giving a written apology.

According to CISF officers, the incident took place around 10.30am.

"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.
