Queens resident Sunando Sen was pushed in front of a 7 train and killed on Thursday night in Sunnyside. Sen had opened Amsterdam Copy & Graphics at 908 Amsterdam Avenue (between 104th and 105th) earlier this year. The shop sold printers and other equipment, as well as offering copy services.

A 31-year-old woman was being held in connection with the crime on Saturday, but had not yet been charged.

Sen, a 46-year-old immigrant from Calcutta, India had worked in the copy and printer business for years. He had dreamed of opening his own business, and finally achieved that dream this year after saving up for years. Friends interviewed by various news outlets said he was quiet and kind.

“I saw him every day,” said Eliezer Garcia, 49, who manages DRD Jewelry nearby, told DNAinfo. “He never skipped a day.”

“He was a very nice gentleman. He liked to read, and he loved computers. He loved to watch movies — comedy, action,” said his business partner Sanjeeb Das in an interview with the New York Post.

      It is truly sad that this has happened yet again. How many more times does something like this have to occur.

      The City and NY State really need to take action to insure that people with serious mental problems are not out on the streets.

      People with serious mental illnesses are not going to follow a treatment program that requires taking medicine on a regularly scheduled basis.

      Enough already. Please let’s keep these people from being a danger to themselves and others.
