Mumbai, Jan 14: A 26-year-old woman has died after her husband allegedly pushed her out of a running local train while they were standing at its door in Mumbai, a police official said on Thursday.

The incident took place on Monday afternoon between Chembur and Govandi railway stations following which the woman's husband was arrested, he said.

The 31-year-old accused and the victim, both labourers and residents of Mankhurd area, got married two months back.

On Monday, they were travelling in a local train along with the victim's seven-year-old daughter from her previous marriage, the Government Railway Police (GRP) official said.

As the woman leaned out of the moving train, her husband held her at the doorway, and then allegedly released her from his grip, following which she fell on the tracks, the official said.

Later, when the train stopped at Govandi station, a woman commuter in the coach, who had been watching the couple, got down and alerted the railway police about the incident.

The police caught the man at the station and then took him to the incident spot, where they found his wife lying injured and unconscious, the official said.

The victim was rushed to a hospital where doctors declared her dead before admission, he said.

The man was arrested and an FIR was registered against him under relevant sections.

The police are trying to verify if the accused was under the influence of sedatives at the time of the incident, the official said.

The woman's daughter was handed over to her relatives, he added.

Following a political crisis in Puducherry, the Union Cabinet on Wednesday recommended the dissolution of the legislative Assembly there. The term of the Puducherry Assembly was to otherwise end in June.

West Bengal

After having a limited presence in the politically polarised Bengal for decades, the BJP has emerged as the ruling Trinamool Congress's main rival by winning 18 of the 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal 2019 General Elections, only four short of TMC's tally of 22. With the BJP's strength increasing in the state in the last few years, its leaders are upbeat that the party will be able to end Banerjee's 10-year rule in the state polls.

Absolute majority in kitty after phase 6, will cross 300-seat mark: Amit  Shah | Hindustan Times

Guwahati, Feb 25: Union home minister Amit Shah on Thursday asked people of Assam to vote for BJP again and promised to make the state flood free in the next five years. 

"We want to make Assam flood free...Modiji wants to make Assam flood free. People of Assam has to face the wrath of flood every year. The work in this regard has started. Satellite mapping is underway to identify places where water can be diverted to create big big lakes for irrigation and to make them into tourism centres. So vote BJP to power again, we will bring relief from flood in the next five years," Shah said while addressing the gathering at Batadrava, the birth place of Srimanta Sankardeb, the neo-Vaishnavite saint of 15th century, in central Assam's Nagaon district. 

Shah's promise about solving flood problem comes after Congress-led "grand alliance" of six opposition parties asked on Monday why Prime Minister Modi was silent on solving Assam's long flood problem. Modi on Monday had addressed a gathering at Silapathar in Dhemaji, a flood-affected district in North Assam but did not say anything about flood. 

Claiming that BJP and its ally Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) can only solve the infiltration problem in Assam, Shah asked, "Can Congress stop infiltration when they are sitting with Badruddin Ajmal? They are sitting with Ajmal and talking about stoping infiltration. Can they stop killing of the rhinos in Assam?"

Shah's jibe at Congress comes at a time when the "grand alliance" has made CAA its biggest poll plank against BJP. They have been alleging that BJP would destroy identity of the Assam's ethnic communities by offering citizenship to large number of post-1971 Hindu migrants from Bangladesh, through the CAA.

Alleging that Congress did nothing to solve Assam's problems, Shah said what BJP-led government did for Assam in the past five years, Congress could not do in 70 years.

Talking about the two new parties, which came into being out of the anti-CAA agitation (Assam Jatiya Parishad and Raijor Dal), Shah said, "Their purpose is to cut votes of BJP and help Congress win. Congress government had opened fire on those who were fighting against the foreigners during the Assam Agitation (1979-1985), and now unfortunately they are helping Congress. People of Assam are not fools. They knows only BJP and AGP can stop infiltration and bring development. The process of real development in the entire Northeast has started during Modiji's tenure," Shah said.

"We will make Assam number 1 state in the country (in terms of development) in five years," Shah further promised.
