A woman travelling by the Katpadi—Villupuram passenger train was robbed of her jewellery and pushed down from the slow moving train on Sunday.

The victim, M.Kaliammal (55), who sustained head injury, was found lying unconscious near a bush at Ayanthur for over 24 hours. She was traced on Monday by her relatives and taken to the Mundiyampakkam government medical college hospital.

Ms. Kaliammal boarded the train at Agaram Sippandhi to Villupuram from where she was to proceed to Cuddalore for a function at her daughter Sivasankari’s place.

Her compartment was initially full, but all the passengers got down at Thirukkoilur. Some unidentified persons entered her compartment and hit her on the head with a log.
