Three held after cake cutting photos go viral

It was in February last year, Chennai city police nabbed 75 criminals after they thronged for the birthday of a history-sheeter named Binu, who chose a machete to cut the birthday cake.

Now, Coimbatore city police have arrested three persons who reprised a similar birthday party where the cake was cut with machete and sword. The trio and their friends also shared their photos with the rusted weapons on social media, which finally landed them behind the bars.

According to the Saravanampatti police, the birthday party was celebrated by a local gang at Sivanandapuram recently.

The police arrested P. Satheeshkumar (27), D. Sundar (48) and M. Aathavan (18) who were identified from the photos circulated on social media based on a complaint filed by C. Sivakumar, a DMK worker.

“We are yet to confirm whose birthday was celebrated and when the party was held. Efforts are being made for the arrest of others who took part in the party,” said Saravanampatty inspector V. Selvaraj.
