Vijay Mallya, former Kingfisher boss and one of the biggest corporate loan defaulters in India, was arrested by Scotland Yard inspectors in London on Tuesday. The arrest was made following a request made by India’s Central Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement Directorate. While Mallya got bail within a few hours, after being produced in the Westminster Magistrates’ Court, Twitterati had a field day on this topic.

From hilarious reaction tweets to Bollywood-inspired gifs and memes, the Twitterverse showed off its clever side. Here is a look at some of the reactions shared on the microblogging site.

Soon after getting bail, Mallya took to Twitter to hit out at the Indian media, saying: “Usual Indian media hype. Extradition hearing in Court started today as expected (sic).” But that did not stop the Twitterati from going on with the hilarious reactions!
