Indian police say woman pushed off train to her death

NEW DELHI >>  Police say a woman was crushed to death after a train conductor pushed her out of a moving train for having boarded the wrong coach in western India.

Officer Hemraj Ambekar said the woman’s two children boarded the air-conditioned coach early Thursday, then the conductor told the woman her tickets entitled them to travel only in a cheaper coach

Her nephew, who had come to see her off from the station, said when she was pushed, she lost her balance and slipped into the gap between the coach and platform and was run over by the train.

Ambekar said police have arrested the conductor and were questioning him and other witnesses. 

It happened in Jalgaon, a small town east of Mumbai, India’s financial hub.
