Loan defaulter, Vijay Mallya’s speedy bail in London on 4th October is not the first. The liquor baron was arrested and bailed in the similar speed on the 18th of April this year. The stark similarities between the two bails also include the numerous jokes that were cracked on twitter. Like last time this time too, the news of his arrest and instant bail, got the creative juices flowing for many on social media.
Here are a couple of tweets that went viral on this occasion:
Anyone who can put Vijay Mallya in jail for a long time should get a no-bail prize

Shortest time periods
Time between the first rain drop and Uber surge pricing
Time between the arrest and grant of bail of Vijay Mallya.

Vijay Mallya has been staying in the UK for over a year now and has been accused of defaulting loans worth 9,000 crore rupees. Even as the chase is scoffed at as another chor-police joke, India’s banks continue to face their NPA woes.
