      NEW YORK (AP)-- New York City police have identified a man they say was shoved to his death in front of a subway train by a woman.

      Police said Friday that Sunando Sen was pushed from the platform the night before. The 46-year-old Sen was from India and lived alone in Queens.

      Investigators identified him through a smartphone and a prescription pill bottle he was carrying when he was struck by a 7 train. His family in India has been notified.  

      Police are searching homeless shelters and psychiatric units for the woman believed to have pushed him. Witnesses say she was mumbling before she shoved him without warning.

      It's the second time this month a man has been pushed to his death on the subway tracks.
