The woman in the video can be seen standing near the door when the young boy boards the running train, snatches her bag while dragging her forward. The unidentified woman also tries to hold the bag but the man pulls it with such force that she gets dangerously close to the edge of the door. In a matter of seconds, the man jerks the bag free from her hand and disappears while other passengers hold the woman back so that she doesn't fall off the train. 

'It's not Indrayani express'

In another Tweet, the Central Railway suggests that the incident took place somewhere else. They also released a list of pointers to make it clear that the incident did not take place in Indrayani Express. They pointed out that the tunnel gap and the type don't match the one between Kalva and Thane. In the tweet, they further also informed that no complaints anywhere regarding such incident so far with GRP or RPF or Railways authorities has been filed.
