It was a dream come true for seven-year-old Arpit Mandal! At the Mulund Police Station in Mumbai, this young lad fulfilled his ambition of donning the hat of a police officer, even if it’s for a day. All thanks to Mumbai police, who gave wings to the ambitions of this young boy, who also happens to be a cancer patient. Arpit was given charge of the Mulund Police Station for a day. Mumbai Police and Make-a-Wish India foundation got together to fulfill Mandal’s dream. In a post on Mumbai Police’s Twitter handle, Arpit can be seen writing something as he sits on the desk at the police station.

This happened when the complainant went to the police to file an FIR. On learning from the FIR details that it was his birthday on the same day, they surprised him with a cake.
