Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh:

A 24-year-old man allegedly committed suicide by jumping in front of a train, but when police informed about the incident to his parents, they dismissed it twice as an April Fool prank.

Ankit, a resident of Jalaun district, allegedly jumped in front of a train near Govindpuri Railway station in Kanpur on April 1, the railway police said.

However, when the police informed about the incident to Ankit's parents, they assumed it to be a prank and ignored the call twice, they said.

After waiting in vain for four hours, the officials sent the body for post-mortem.
