Chided by his mother for going late to school, a 10th standard student allegedly attempted suicide by jumping in front of a Metro train on Friday, police said.


The 18-year-old student was saved in the nick of time as the alert train driver Madivalappa applied sudden brake and he escaped getting run over, police said.
