Woman thrown off train after she resist snatchers

Bareilly: A woman engineer was battling for life after being thrown from a running train here by some miscreants when she resisted their attempt to rob her bag, police said today.

Jagrati Sharma was chasing the bag-snatchers who pushed her out of the compartment of the Lucknow-Kathgodam express late last night when the train had started moving from Bhojipura railway station here, they said.

The train was stopped by passengers by pulling the chain and the victim was rushed to Bhojipura Primary Health Centre by the RPF, from where she was taken to SRMS Medical College hospital, Bareilly, in a serious condition.

The miscreants, however, escaped.

The victim is a resident of Shastri Nagar locality here and was on her way to Rudrapur (Uttarakhand) where she works in a company, police added.
