Just hours after Business tycoon Vijay Mallya was arrested in London, he was granted bail by the Westminster court in London. Earlier today, Scotland Yard police arrested Mallya in connection with the money laundering case against him. This development came a year after he fled the country.
However, before people sink in and react on the development, Mallya was let out on bail. After his arrest, it was reported that the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will soon visit the United Kingdom. The Scotland Yard police affirmed that the arrest was made on the request of the Indian authorities.

Mallya who is accused of defaulting on loans worth Rs 9,000 crore, even took a dig at the media minutes after the reports of him being granted a bail surfaced. “Usual Indian media hype. Extradition hearing in Court started today as expected,” he tweeted. Naturally, Twitter had the best reactions to his bail. Check out some of the most hilarious reactions on Twitter:
