The woman had come from her brother’s house in Noida the night of September 11 to get on a train departing for Ludhiana at 4.30 the next morning. She said Kumar approached her in the waiting room at the New Delhi Railway Station and offered to drop her at the bus stop so she could take a bus instead.
