The decay-induced interference effects in order to slow down light propagation is studied. The system investigated is a V-shaped closed three-level system, with lower level |1> and upper levels |2≫ and |3>. The absorption of a single weak probe in the system has been shown to exhibit ultranarrow resonances. The steep dispersion accompanying the transparency leads to group velocity reduction and a weak pulse of spectral width similar to the width of the transparency region propagates in the medium with a highly reduced group velocity.
