Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi returned to Delhi on Thursday from his a two-month "unexplained" sabbatical.

Rahul arrived in New Delhi at 11.15am on a Thai Airways plane from Bangkok. The plane, which was scheduled to land at 10.35am, was delayed by 40 minutes, a PTI report said.

Missing from action for almost two months, Rahul has been on a leave of absence since the Parliament's Budget Session began on February 23.

His absence came amid intensely fluid political season that saw his mother and party president Sonia leading the opposition's protest against the controversial land acquisition bill.

The party, however, has been defending Rahul's absence all these days, saying his right to privacy should be respected.

People on Twitter had been speculating the whereabouts of the Congress scion.

Here are the 20 viral pictures with tongue-in-cheek comments with hashtag #WhereisRahul:
