Man shoots him­self at Ra­jiv Chowk metro sta­tion


In a ma­jor se­cu­rity breach, a 22-year-old man al­legedly shot him­self with a coun­try-made gun at the crowded Ra­jiv Chowk metro sta­tion in New Delhi, re­cently. The per­son, iden­ti­fied as Sridesh Ad­hikari, a na­tive of a vil­lage in Ut­tar Pradesh, was rushed RML Hos­pi­tal, where he was op­er­ated upon. The in­ci­dent, which took place around 9:45 p.m., raised se­ri­ous con­cern over se­cu­rity in the Delhi Metro net­work.

Both Delhi Po­lice and CISF, which se­cures Metro premises, have ini­ti­ated sep­a­rate probe into the in­ci­dent. It is be­ing looked into how he could man­age to en­ter the metro sta­tion with a gun, a po­lice of­fi­cer said.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, Sridesh boarded a train from Chandni Chowk sta­tion (on Yel­low Line) and was on his way to Noida (on Blue Line). While chang­ing train at Ra­jiv Chowk, he went to a se­cluded cor­ner and al­legedly tried to shoot him­self in the head but he missed and the bul­let grazed past his shoul­der. Hear­ing the gun­shot, CISF per­son­nel rushed to the spot and called up the po­lice con­trol room. cans were vic­tims of a data breach. But while iden­tity theft is wor­ry­ing to think of, the Ash­ley Madi­son and Planned Par­ent­hood hacks are equally con­cern­ing in that they weren’t done for fi­nan­cial rea­sons — th­ese hack­ers re­leased per­sonal in­for­ma­tion and data sim­ply be­cause they could.

Th­ese hacks and cy­ber at­tacks come from crim­i­nals, for­eign coun­tries and bored Amer­i­cans. Th­ese hacks are pick­ing up and will likely blow the 780 breaches from 2014 out of the wa­ter.
