The 46-year old man who was pushed to his death in front of a subway train here by a "mumbling" woman has been identified as Sunando Sen, an Indian who lived in the city's Queens neighbourhood.
Sen was killed after the woman shoved him on to the path of an oncoming train in a Queens subway station late Thursday night. It was the second time this month that a person was pushed on to the subway tracks by a fellow commuter.
New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said the police were still searching for the female suspect, who raced down two flights of stairs after the attack and disappeared into a crowd on the street.
Sen had opened a small copying and printing business this year in the city's Upper West Side.
He was hit by the first car of the train and his body was pinned under the second car before the 11-car train came to a stop.
The condition of Sen's body made it difficult for police to identify him, and investigators used his phone and a medicine bottle he was carrying for his identification. Police said his family in India has been notified.
According to Sen's roommates, he was not married and his parents were dead. A R Suman, one of the four roommates with whom Sen shared a small apartment, described him as a "very educated person and quite nice".
"It is unbelievable. He never had a problem with anyone," Suman said in a report in The New York Times.
There was no video at the subway station and the New York Police Department released a surveillance video from near the station showing the suspect running away from the scene.
The woman has been described as a 5-foot 5-inch tall Hispanic in her 20s wearing a blue, white and gray jacket and sneakers.
