It was stated that the attacker sprayed hydrochloric acid inside the wagon and tried to set the wagon on fire.
It was announced that 1 people were injured, one seriously, in the attack. In a statement made by the authorities, it was stated that the attacker was caught.
While the panic experienced on the train was reflected in the amateur camera footage, the flights were temporarily suspended. While the investigation into the incident was initiated, the fact that the action took place on the day of the general election in the country led to the suspicion of a "terrorist act".
While at least 6 ambulances reached the scene, it was stated that the attacker, who was taken into custody, was 24 years old. Eyewitnesses speaking to the media reported that there were people going to Halloween events on the train heading towards Shinjuku, known as the world's most crowded station, and that the attacker was dressed in Batman's villain Joker costume.
