Proudly adorning the signature khaki police uniform, five terminally-ill children assumed command as Bengaluru top cop for a day as part of a special initiative by city police and ''Make a Wish'' foundation.
The five children - Ruthan Kumar, Mohammad Sahib, Sayed Imad, Shravani and Arfath Pasha - were also given the customary guard of honour from police team as well as the dog squad before assuming charge as the city's Commissioner of Police.
The children were seen happily interacting with police dogs and looked visibly elated when they were handed police gun and handcuffs.
