What was supposed to be a fun birthday party turned into a mass police roundup.

Police in Chennai, India, announced that they have arrested 75 wanted criminals at the birthday party of a man known to law enforcement officials.

The birthday boy, who was identified as P. Binu, had about 28 open criminal cases including 3 murders against him and was on the run for 2 years.

He invited over 100 friends to celebrate his 47th birthday.

Photos from the birthday party showed Binu using a machete to cut his birthday cake as he was surrounded by his smiling friends.

Binu and a few others managed to escape and are once again on the run from the police.

Officers said that 45 motorcycles, seven cars, 15 weapons, and cell phones were seized.
