The police had earlier arrested the two attackers. Sumit, who suffered severe burns died while undergoing treatment at the Kottayam Medical College. The police stated that the attack was due to personal enmity.

The police arrested two accused Sabu and Praseed in Idukki following the incident. The arrest followed their alleged attempt to kill Sumit. Sumit sustained serious injuries to his face, neck, and body in the acid attack and was admitted to Kottayam Medical College Hospital.
