Mumbai, November 15: In a shocking incident, a thief stole an iPhone 7 phone from a local train commuter and was run over by a train while trying to escape. The incident happened on Tuesday when a resident of Ghatkopar West was heading home. He fell asleep inside the train and when he woke up, he found his trouser pocket to be torn and his phone was missing.

The man went to Wadala GRP station to file a police complaint and kept on trying his number, hoping that someone will pick up and he will be able to trace his lost phone.
