Bareilly:  A 23-year-old woman, a national level volleyball player, has lost her leg after she was pushed out of a train in Uttar Pradesh by three men who were trying to rob her.

Arunima Sinha was headed to Delhi when a group of men tried to snatch her gold chain. When she fought back, they pushed her onto the track as the train was passing through Bareilly.

She is now in hospital. ''I fell on the adjoining track, but could not get up. I was too late. I saw a train come and run over my left leg. The villagers found me and brought me to this hospital,'' said Arunima. 

The police have registered a case of attempt to murder but none of her attackers have been traced.

Arunima is a student at Awadh University. She is also the sole earning member of a family of five. "I wanted to play for the country. I also wanted a steady job. Now I don't know what I will do.''
