A man was dragged to his death by a subway in Grand Central after the train snagged either his clothing or his shoulder bag Tuesday night, cops said.

The 39-year-old man was dragged onto the tracks by a Queens-bound No. 7 train just after 7:20 p.m., cops said. His body then slammed into an electrical box on the tracks, cops said.
