Mumbai: Five policemen in the city were suspended on Wednesday for allegedly celebrating inside a police station the birthday of a man who had faced criminal cases.
The video of the celebration has been doing the rounds on social media. It shows Ayaan Khan, who had been booked in cases of assault and kidnapping in the past, cutting a cake at the Bhandup police station here.
