Two more arrests were made on Tuesday in connection with the birthday celebration of a 25-year-old youth, who cut 25 cakes with an unlicensed sword in the presence of 30 guests, to usher in his birthday on July 18. A TikTok influencer, Adnaan Shaikh, who had been earlier booked by Bandra Police in May 2019 for performing stunts without a helmet on Bandra Reclamation Road, was one of those arrested.

Following the arrest of Haris Khan, 25, who was captured brandishing an unlicensed sword while cutting 25 cakes at his birthday party, two other guests-- Adnaan Shaikh, 25 and Faiz Ejaz Shaikh, 22, were arrested on Tuesday. Adnaan was among the 30 guests on the terrace of Al-Hilal building, Bandra, along with Faiz, seen violating social distancing norms in the video.

The video was reported to police by a social activist, who pointed out that none of the guests were seen wearing masks or maintaining social distancing. Bandra Police said the procedure to identify and nab the remaining guests at the birthday party was underway after they were booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code, Arms Act and Maharashtra Police Act for disobedience of police orders, negligent act and using a weapon.
