Even today, metro ran around 90 trips more after Lt Governor Anil Baijal approved the Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority's orders announced yesterday.
The victim, Hans Ram Barla, was posted in the security wing of Delhi Police and was on medical leave for the last one month.

Delhi Metro on Tuesday steeply hiked its fares, the second time this year, igniting mostly negative reviews from commuters amid some confusion over the hike.
BJP demanded the Delhi government give a Rs 3,000 crore annual grant if it wanted the withdrawal of the proposed metro fare hike.
Travelling on Delhi Metro will pinch your pockets from Tuesday with the decks cleared for another fare hike, which will lead to an increase of Rs 10 for all travels beyond 5 km
Arvind Kejriwal said the Centre bore the entire loss of Kolkata Metro and there should be no difficulty if it provided half the funds in the case of Delhi.
The Centre, however, said a fresh committee to fix fares could be considered if the Delhi government agrees to provide over Rs 3,000 crore every year to DMRC.
The Delhi Metro, on its part, has been maintaining that it has a "huge loan liability" and a rapidly rising operating ratio, which means its expenditure as against every rupee earned is going up.
The existing fare structure is: up to 2 kms -- Rs 10, 2-5 kms -- Rs 15, 5-12 kms -- Rs 20, 12-21 kms -- Rs 30, 21-32 kms -- Rs 40 and for journeys beyond 32 kms -- Rs 50.
In a letter to Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri, Kejriwal today said the proposed hike, to be effected from October 10, would be in "violation of the recommendations of the fare fixation panel".
Arvind Kejriwal demanded that a board meeting of DMRC should be convened to stay the proposed fare hike as the corporation is jointly owned by the Central and Delhi govts.
The Delhi Metro fares were increased following the recommendations of the fourth Fare Fixation Committee.
