A 24-year-old man was arrested on Monday for allegedly pushing a 58-year-old woman out of a train while trying to snatch her bag five days ago.

The woman, Pratibha Tripathi, had sustained injuries on her head and a fracture in her hand. On August 22, Tripathi, who was headed to her sister’s residence in Bengaluru, had boarded a train from platform.

As she called up her sister to inform that she had boarded the train, a man started pulling her bag and they entered into a scuffle. Eventually, the man pushed her and Tripathi fell out of the train, injuring her head and hand.

She then approached the CST GRP, where a case of robbery and attempt to murder was registered against an unidentified person.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (GRP) Purshottam Karad said, “The woman was pushed out of a moving train and could have suffered a life threatening injury had she fallen on the tracks. Given the gravity of the offence, we set up several teams to probe the incident.”

“Eventually, we received a tip-off that the person involved in the crime was sleeping outside the JJ hospital. A team reached the spot and arrested Mukaddar Idrisi. We have also recovered the cellphone that the accused had stolen from the victim,” he added.
