This was the heart-stopping moment a thief got into a slow-moving train, snatched the bag of an elderly woman standing it the doorway and leapt back into the darkness outside.

The thief almost dragged the victim outside the train as she tried to resist. She managed to find her balance with the help of two other passengers.

An onboard CCTV camera filmed an elderly couple standing near the door as the train slowed down in central India. The thief ran alongside the slow-moving train, grabbed the bag and escaped.
