New Delhi: At least one person was killed and four others were injured when a portion of the Gokulpuri Metro Station wall on Pink Line collapsed on Thursday, an official said.

According to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) official, the unfortunate incident occurred at around 11 am, when a portion of the metro station wall collapsed and fell on the road.

All injured were rushed to a nearby hospital where one of them succumbed to the injuries.

The official added that the debris was cleared immediately. Two DMRC officials from the civil department have been suspended following the incident.

DMRC has announced ex-gratia of Rs 15 lakh to the next of kin of the deceased, Rs 2.5 lakh for grievously injured and Rs 50,000 to those with minor injury, he added.

He said train services on the small stretch from Maujpur to Shiv Vihar are running on single line, to repair the collapsed portion, towards the Up platform on Gokulpuri station which has also been temporarily closed.
