John Tomlin was held on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent over the alleged attack in Beckton, east London, on 21 June. …
Resham Khan and Jameel Muhktar, 37, were attacked by a man throwing acid through their car window on Ms Khan’s 21st birthday.
Both suffered life-changing injuries in the attack that took place just after 9.10am on Tollgate Road.
In the days afterwards, Ms Khan said: “I’m devastated. I keep wondering if my life will ever be the same.”
In a Facebook post, she stressed he did not want the incident to “fuel a division among people“.
Mr Mukhtar has said he feels “emotionally wrecked” and “in continuous pain”.
In an emotional interview with Channel 4 News, Mr Mukhtar described the feeling as “like somebody’s ironing me 24/7”.
Scotland Yard said their investigation into the incident was continuing.
