An elderly woman was beaten up and robbed on a train between Borivli and Mumbai Central Terminus on Thursday. A report in Mumbai Mirror said that a Western Railway official identified the woman as Mansi Kelkar (62) who boarded the Ahmedabad-Mumbai Central train’s middle ladies coach from Palghar.

When the train reached Borivali station, the passengers in the coach got down, leaving Kelkar, a Dadar resident, alone. As the train left the station, a man boarded the coach and attacked the senior citizen, snatched her 32-gram gold chain, a mobile phone and Rs 1,000 cash. An official said that Kelkar sustained injuries on her face and eyes. The officials suspected that the assaulter got down as the train slowed down while reaching Mumbai Central Terminus Station.

After the train reached Mumbai Central, the woman then reported the incident to the security personnel after which she was immediately sent to Nair Hospital for treating her injuries.
