In a heartwarming gesture, Mumbai police has fulfilled the dream of a seven year old cancer patient by making him a cop for a day.
Arpit Mandal aspires to become a police inspector but the life threatening disease stands between his dream and his spirit.
Arpit realised his dream after Make-a-Wish India foundation,an organisation that fulfils wishes of children suffering from fatal ailments, approached Mumbai police to make it true. The seven-year-old was given the charge of Mulund police station on Thursday.
The social media handle of Mumbai Police shared a collage of four images that showed the kid donning the police uniform and surrounded by officials of Mulund police station. In another photo, police can be seen feeding cake to the young lad.
