During interrogation, the man also confessed that he had carried out the attack.

Tracking mobile phone number, police traced the accused Jane Alam alias Jahangir, 30, from Rupganj of Mirpur in Dhaka,” said SM Mostain Hossen, deputy commissioner of Chittagong Metropolitan, at a press conferee.

On Monday, Selina Akhter, 22, and her mother Hosne Ara, 45, had suffered burn injuries in their face and different parts of the bodies as Jahangir, ex-husband of Selina, also a CNG-run auto rickshaw driver, threw acid on them while they sleeping inside their house city’s Railway Officers’ club area.

They are now undergoing treatment at the Chittagong Medical College Hospital (CMCH)’s Burn and Plastic Unit.

DC Mostain said after carrying out the acid attack, Jahangir had fled to his native house in Rangpur and later he went to Dhaka to avert arrest.

During primary interrogation, Jahangir confessed to throw acid on his ex-wife as there had been a conjugal dispute which triggered divorce between them, said the DC.

Addressing the press briefing, the DC said, though Selina divorced Jahangir one year ago, Jahangir still want to live with her, but Selina did not want it.

When asking the police official about from where he collected the acid, the DC said police were investigating the matter.

However, seeking anonymity, an investigation officer said Jahangir collected the acid from his CNG-auto rickshaw battery.

Jahangir told journalists that Selina divorced her but he still loved her and wanted to live her, but Selina denied accepting him which infuriated him.

The accused was sent to jail after producing before a court.
