Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Swift action by the Delhi Police prevented a man from committing suicide by jumping into the Yamuna river here, officials said Saturday.

According to police, at around 11.20 pm on Friday, a man named Omi approached a Police Control Room (PCR) van of north east zone at its base point.

He told them that his brother Rajender had a quarrel with some family members and in a fit of rage had gone towards Wazirabad to commit suicide by jumping into the Yamuna river, they said.

The PCR van searched the spot and traced the man near the Signature Bridge, a senior police officer said, adding that they managed to convince the man to not take the extreme step.
