A video is being widely shared on social media in which a man can be seen snatching a woman’s purse from a moving train. It has been claimed that the incident took on Indrayani Express (Pune to Mumbai) between Mumbra and Thane.
The caption in Hindi read: “पुणे मुम्बई के बीच इंद्रायणी एक्सप्रेस में थाने और मुम्बरा स्टेशन के बीच की घटना ध्यान रहे मुम्ब्रा को मिनी पाकिस्तान कहा जाता है”
