Binita Santal, a resident of Belchara village in Khowai district of Tripura, has been booked by the police for throwing acid on her boyfriend Soumen Santal.
As per reports, the incident took place on October 19 and a case against Binita was lodged on Tuesday after the victim’s brother filed an FIR against her.
“Both Binita and Soumen used to work outside the state and they returned to their homes in September this year,” police sources informed.
