Just when people across the world were coming to terms with liquor baron Vijay Mallya’s arrest, the news of his bail has now sent the social media into a tizzy. Netizens, especially on Twitter, seem a confused lot, especially after the lightning speed at which Mallya got bail after his arrest in London by the Scotland Yard. While on one hand Twitter bells were ringing with ‘Vijay Mallya arrest’ memes and funny reactions, other Twitter users had begun discussing the bail he availed in just a matter of hours.
Sample some of the reactions here.

Along with the news of his arrest that surfaced earlier on April 18, reports also suggested that Mallya will soon be extradited to India for further probe. After a lookout notice was issued against Mallya, he had fled the country and sought refuge in the United Kingdom. He is wanted for defaulting on loans worth crores of rupees and as a prime accuse in many economic offences cases.
From people expressing shock and confusion to those cracking up — there is clearly no dearth in the many emotions the Vijay Mallya arrest (bail?) episode has triggered.
