Belcarra village is located near the city of Khowai. Saumen Chandal (30), a resident of the area, was admitted to Agartala Medical College Hospital with injuries. He was injured in an acid attack and suffered damage to the nose, eyes, and respiratory tract.
His brother, his brother’s girlfriend Pinata Chandel, 27, complained to the police that he had thrown the acid. According to the confession given by Pinata when the police arrested and questioned him: We have both been in love for the past 8 years. Saumen has been dating another woman for the past 2 years. He did not agree to marry me.
We fell in love at school. He found it difficult to study further after completing his higher studies. After I completed my eight standards, I scrubbed the dishes in many places, worked for wages, and sent money to make him study. Saumen, who graduated in 2018, after joining the job he avoided talking to me.
I was also outraged to learn that he was dating another woman. So I threw acid to avenge his betrayal. Thus says Pinata. The police, who arrested Pinata, produced her in court. She was remanded in judicial custody for 15 days.
