Bath Tub Drain Thread Stuck and Flangr broken

I was trying to remove bath tub drain using extractor (as there was no t) but flange of drain broke off from half of thread portion (due to corrosion of threads) resulting in some part of threaded portion of drain stuck in the pipe. How do i remove remaining portion of threaded drain from pipe to install a new drain. Tyr using extractor but it will not catch on to threads stuck inside pipe as tool diameter is bigger

I would carefully use a punch & hammer or chisel the old drain (male piece that broke) inward. Be careful to not damage the outer female threads.
