New Delhi: Delhi Metro's Blue Line services were affected briefly on Thursday morning after a 50-year-old man committed suicide by jumping on the tracks at Dwarka Mor station.

According to the Deputy Commissioner of Police of the Delhi Metro, the incident took place at around 10 am on Platform 1 of the Dwarka Mor station. 

Earlier, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) tweeted that the services between Dwarka Sector 21 and Rajiv Chowk were delayed after a passenger jumped on the tracks at Dwarka Mor metro station.
