New Delhi: Police on Tuesday arrested a man for his alleged involvement in snatching a purse of a 40-year-old woman, who fell off the moving Yoga Express trying to resist the bid and died.

 The woman's purse has been recovered, police said, refusing to divulge further details. 

 

The woman, Sudhir Bansal, was accompanying her son, Gaurav, who recently enrolled into the Delhi University, to help him find accommodation. 

They boarded the Yoga Express from Rajasthan. Sudhir was standing near the door of a compartment. When the train slowed down near the Mithai Pul, on the way to the railway station, a person caught hold of her bag, the police said.

The woman tried to fight him off but lost her balance and fell down on the tracks. She came under the wheels of the train and was injured, the police said. 

Bansal's son tried to save her but was unsuccessful. She died while being taken to a hospital.
