A 52-year-old woman, who was on the run for the last 33 years after she allegedly murdered her daughter at East Dukli area in Tripura’s East Agartala in 1986, was arrested on Friday.
Police said the woman identified as Jhulan Biswas, who committed the murder when she was just 19-year-old, was arrested from East Dukli area here.
