New York, December 29:

Police in New York are searching for a woman who allegedly shoved an Indian immigrant man to his death in front of a train on a New York City subway platform.

The victim was identified as Sunando Sen, 46, of Queens, who had been raised in India and who, after years of toil, had finally saved enough money to open a small copying business this year on the Upper West Side, media reports said.

It was the second time in a month that a man had been pushed under a train in New York.

Police are searching for a woman seen running from an elevated station for the No. 7 train in Queens on Thursday evening, CNN reported Friday citing Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne.

According to witnesses cited by the channel, the woman was pacing the platform and talking to herself shortly before pushing Sen onto the tracks as the 11-car train entered the station. The victim's body was pinned under the second car after it came to a stop.

Police described her as a heavyset woman in her 20s, wearing a ski jacket and sneakers. Security video shows her running from the scene shortly after 8 p.m. Thursday.

Sen's roommate, Ar Suman, 33, told CNN Friday that after living together for over a year they had become like "family."

"I came home and I heard this happened," Suman was quoted as saying, "I am feeling very bad."

Sen owned a shop called New Amsterdam Copies and was a graphic designer for posters, according to Suman.

"He was a very educated person and quite nice," Suman, one of four roommates who shared a small first-floor apartment with Sen in Elmhurst, was quoted as saying by the New York Times. "It is unbelievable. He never had a problem with anyone."

Suman said that as far as he knew, Sen did little more than work and come home. Both his parents were dead, they said, and he was not married and had no children.

Sen suffered a heart attack about nine months ago, Suman was quoted as saying by the Times, but did not slow down. The night stand in Sen's bedroom had many bottles of prescription medicine. Across the room on his desk was a pile of medical bills.

His roommates said he liked watching funny clips on YouTube to unwind, enjoyed a cup of tea and would relax listening to classical Indian music.
