A Muslim woman has been bashed and pushed from a moving train in a vicious racist attack.
Police say the 26-year-old victim was standing near the door on an Upfield line train when a woman approached her and started making racist remarks.
The culprit then allegedly grabbed the victim by the neck and hair and repeatedly slammed her head into the wall of the carriage.
She then pushed the victim off the train as it pulled into Batman railway station, police said.

She was wearing baggy jeans, a puffy hooded top and runners.
