A 55-year-old man died after consuming acid, mistaking it for alcohol at Lankapura ADC village under Tripura's Khowai district on Friday.

The deceased, Kartik Mohan Debbarma, under the influence of alcohol drank a bottle full of acid and died on the spot, said the police.

Sources said that Debbarma was a habitual drunkard and on the night of the incident, he was in an inebriated condition.
