Accused Binita Santal was arrested on Tuesday and sent to 14 days judicial custody.

According to police sources, the estranged couple was living together outside Tripura. “However, last September, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they both returned to their respective homes. The victim, since the return, had been avoiding Binita and even blocked her number, which enraged her,” the NDTV report said quoting the police officials of the Khowai station where a complaint was registered by the victim’s brother

“Binita Santal then somehow convinced Soumen Santal to meet her and came prepared with the acid. They engaged in a quarrel that further angered her and she threw the acid at his face and left,” the report added.
