A 46-year old Indian immigrant, who was killed after being pushed by a woman onto subway train tracks, was cremated here on Sunday.
Sunando Sen's cremation was attended by his friends, business partners and a representative of the Indian Consulate in New York, a senior consulate official told PTI.
Sen, who owned a printing and copying business near Columbia University, died after being pushed by 31-year old Erika Menendez in front of an oncoming train at a Queens station on December 27.
Sen was unmarried and did not have any family in India. He had lived with roommates in a small apartment for the last 16 years.
The official described Sen's death as "very very sad" and said his friends were in mourning over his tragic demise. Sen's friends had been in touch with the Indian consulate for arranging his cremation.
Erika Menendez has been charged with murder as a hate crime and ordered to undergo psychiatric examination by a judge after she said at her arraignment last week that she "thought it would be cool" to push Sen because she thought he "was a Muslim."
The next hearing has been set for January 14. Menendez has not yet entered a plea and is being held without bail.
