The city police today arrested three persons and launched a manhunt to nab the main accused behind the incident where a 10-year-old girl died of suspected food poisoning on March 25 after eating her birthday cake.

The accused have been identified as Gurmeet Singh of Green View Colony, along with Ranjeet, Pawan Mishra, and Vijay Kumar, who were booked today. Three bakery workers have been apprehended by the police. However, Gurmeet Singh, the owner of Kanha Bakery, remains at large and is yet to be arrested.

The incident took place on March 24, when the family of victim Manvi (10) celebrated their daughter’s birthday and ordered a cake online.

Harbans Lal, the maternal grandfather of the victim, added that five members of the family had eaten the cake.
