Kolkata, Feb 14 (IANS) Apparently distressed over a failed relationship, a 22-year-old girl was seriously injured after she attempted to commit suicide by jumping into the railway tracks of the crowded Howrah station from a bridge Tuesday.
The family members said Swati Dutta, a resident of Batra in Howrah district, was depressed after a failed love affair with a married man.
Police said Swati jumped from a height of 40 feet on the Bankim Setu bridge overlooking the station on the railway track near platform number 14 at around 1 p.m.
