Flair de Noozle (34) from Holland was going to Amritsar by Dehradun-Amritsar Express on the night of November 12 when she was pushed off the train by an unknown man, SSP Arun Mohan Joshi said.

He said the incident occurred when Flair went to the toilet with a bag tied around her waist after the train left Laxar station. As she came out of the toilet, a man standing near the wash basin pushed her out of the running train, he said.

The man too jumped out and snatched the bag from the tourist who was lying unconscious near the railway track, the SSP said, adding that the culprit later fled.

A police patrol team found her lying there and rushed her to a nearby nursing home from where she was discharged yesterday.

The bag contained Flair's passport, ATM and credit cards and an iPod among other valuables, Joshi said.

Flair came to India on October 2 on a tourist visa, he added.
