A 25-year-old woman was arrested in Nagpur for allegedly throwing acid at the wife and two-and-half-year-old son of the man she was in a relationship with, a police official said on Monday.
The incident took place on Saturday morning and one woman connected with the incident is on the run, the Yashodhara Nagar police station official said.
"The accused and victim used to have arguments over the latter's illicit relationship. The accused then conspired with her friend and flung acid on the woman and her toddler son. The two were rushed to the government medical college and hospital and are undergoing treatment for burn injuries on the face," he said.
The accused, who was held on the basis of mobile phone location and CCTV footage, has been charged under section 326A, related to acid attacks, of the Indian Penal Code, the official added.
