The idea of Mallya returning to India has made Twitter berserk, with hilarious jokes doing the rounds
It is a hard task to stop netizens trolling after news breaks, with memes, jokes, and abuses on the subject of discussion filling the internet in seconds. And something similar happened when a report claimed on Wednesday night that fugitive Vijay Mallya will be flown back to India as soon as all the legalities are completed.
Now, we are still not sure whether the news is accurate or not, but the idea of Mallya returning to India has made Twitter berserk, with hilarious jokes doing the rounds.
A Twitter user made a meme of popular Bollywood movie, Mujhse Shaadi Karoge, referring to banks asking Mallya to look them into their eyes.
Another netizen on Twitter wrote, signaling banks breathing a sigh of relief after the announcement.
On Wednesday, citing Indian government sources, news agency IANS said that Mallya will be in India anytime soon in the coming days.
"As he has lost his appeal in the UK Supreme Court there, we have completed all the legal process for his extradition," the source further said.
However, today a report by Times of India said that Mallya, who owns Rs 9,961 crore to Indian banks, will not be extradited anytime soon, quoting Mallya's personal assistant and a senior official of Indian high commission in London.
The Indian official in London said that media has picked up old statements of CBI, India's central investigation agency. "The situation has not changed. There are delays," the official said.
Mallya is accused of defrauding as many as 17 Indian banks and fled the country in March 2016.
