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.
