Delhi Is Laughing At The High Court For Asking Kejriwal What A "Thulla" Is

"If you have used this word, you must be knowing the meaning."

Last July, Arvind Kejriwal was sued for criminal defamation by Delhi cops for calling them "thulla" in a TV interview.

In the interview, he said, "Even if a thulla is caught demanding money from street vendors, we can't try him."

The word "thulla" is commonly used in Delhi as slang for cops.

The Delhi High Court, however, remained a little... er... out of the loop and asked him for the meaning of the word.

The judge added "If you have used this word, you must be knowing the meaning."

The judge added "If you have used this word, you must be knowing the meaning."

Delhi, though, has been sniggering on the sidelines. The word also started trending on Twitter soon enough.

The jokes keep coming in.

And they go on...

And ON...

AND ON...

Just another day in Indian politics, guys.
