Aditya Vemulapati will be sentenced to eight years in prison with supervision for five years after his release.
Around 8:30 am on November 19, 2020, a horrifying incident of a victim woman in her 40s standing on a platform was projected on the camera.
Vemurapati waited for the train to enter the station, then ran behind a stranger and pushed her in front of the train.

She landed between the tracks before several trains passed, but surprisingly she survived with only minor injuries.
She was rescued by firefighters from under the train and was treated at the hospital after MTA workers rang the radio for help.
Another transport worker who witnessed the stick out took action until police arrived and held Vemulapati.
“New Yorkers deserve a safe trip on the subway,” said Alvin Bragg, a district attorney in Manhattan. “Aditya Vemulapati tried to kill a stranger for no apparent reason and pushed her into the subway tracks. Today he is held accountable for his actions.”
