In the neighbouring Panchkula, the police received a tweet from one of the relatives of an elderly man, Karan Puri, who turned 71 on Tuesday, requesting to celebrate his birthday as he was alone at home. His children live abroad.
The police decided to celebrate his birthday by sending a cake. Seeing cops at his gate with a cake, Puri was in tears. "I am living alone. My kids live abroad. What can I do for you for this surprise," he asked.
