The suspect, described as a heavyset Hispanic woman, shoved the man into the path of an oncoming train on an elevated station platform in the borough of Queens, Reuters reported.
“The victim appeared not to notice her, according to witnesses,” New York City Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said in a statement, according to Bloomberg News.
His body was run over by the first car of an 11-car No. 7 train.
The victim has been identified as Sunando Sen, a 46-year-old Indian immigrant who lived in Queens and co-owned a printing company, the New York Daily News reported.
Sen immigrated from Calcutta about 20 years ago, and opened New Amsterdam Printing Co. in Manhattan about six months ago, according to the New York Daily News.
“He was a a nice and quiet and very good person,” his roommate Ar Suman, 33, told the New York Daily News. “Seven days a week he worked. He wanted to be his own boss.”
“He was so gentle and nice,” another roomate, MD Khan, told the New York Daily News about Sen, who was unmarried. “He was such a nice guy. Always happy. It’s unbearable.”

The woman was seen mumbling to herself before walking up behind the man and pushing Sen onto the tracks, WCBS reported.
She then fled, and police today released surveillance video showing her running from the area.
"I heard it. One of my customers was on train and heard it going over body," Jiovanni Briones, who works near the scene, told WNBC.
Earlier this month, 30-year-old Naeem Davis was charged with murder after pushing 58-year-old father Ki-Suck Han in front of a train in Times Square.
