According to family members, the couple has a cow farm in front of their home at Gopinathpur Hatubhanga village where they sleep every night in order to guard the cows. At around 2:30am on Sunday, some miscreants threw acid on them while they were sleeping.

Regarding the matter, inspector Md Abdul Latif Miah, in charge of Narayanpur Investigation Centre under Sadar police station, said: “We have visited the scene and collected burnt curtain, bed sheet, clothes and other things as evidence.”

“The relatives said they will file a case later as they are now busy with the couple’s treatment. Once a case is filed, we will investigate the matter thoroughly, the police official added.
