Train bandits in India shoot dead Russian woman

A Russian woman has been shot dead during a robbery on a train in India. The train was travelling from the holy city of Varanasi to Mumbai when it was stormed by six armed men.

The men combed the carriage, taking valuables and cash from the passengers.  

But 45-year-old Nadezhda Klimova refused to comply.  It's reported one of the robbers opened fire when she tried to resist, killing Nadezhda and injuring her husband and a friend.

The robbers escaped, getting off the train at the next station before guards raise the alarm.  

Russia has demanded police investigate the incident as soon as possible.

The body of a Nadezhda Klimova will soon be brought back to Russia.
