Yesterday morning, Dravita Singh boarded a train to CSMT on her way to office.

After crossing Sandhurst Road, she received a call, but the network was poor inside, so she went to the door and stood on the footboard while on phone.

As the train exited Masjid Bunder, a young boy on a signal pole hit her hand and took off with her phone.

There was no CCTV camera in the vicinity, so police used their informer network and traced Dravita's phone to Ruksana, the alleged mastermind of the racket.

"She buys stolen cellphones from minors and sells them at a profit," said DCP Samadhan Pawar.

Ruksana and the thief were arrested. The latter has been booked for attempt to murder.

Meanwhile, Dravita is coping well, doctors said.
