In a similar incident earlier in January, a video went viral showing a man celebrating his birthday by shooting at the cake. He did not shoot the cake once, but several times as a celebratory gesture. While it was speculated that the incident took place in Meerut in Uttar Pradesh, the police had denied it. Interestingly, the cake had the word "Gujjar" written on it.
