Cutting birthday cakes with a sword seems to have become a trend. A similar case occurred last year when a 22-year-old, Fahad Amjad Shaikh was accused of conducting the same offence. On his birthday, while the COVID pandemic was at its peak, he not only cut his cakes with a sword but simultaneously violated the COVID protocols as well.
Prior to this, in the year 2020, a boy named, Haris Khan, was arrested by the police for slicing about 25 cakes with a sword. Along with Haris, 30 more were detained for not following the COVID guidelines that were enforced by the authority.
