In a bizarre incident that took place in Uttar Pradesh’s Jalaun district, a herd of eight donkeys were allowed to walk free after four days on confinement. The incident happened at the Urail jail, were the eight donkeys had been in lock-up for four days.
The herd of donkeys was locked up in the jail for destroying expensive plants which the senior officer of the jail had arranged for planting inside the jail.
While the four-legged animals were bailed out after a local politician intervened and insisted on their release, twitterati could soon be seen tweeting their minds on the microblogging site.
Here are a few reactions:

Our take home from this:
1. Donkeys make headlines
2. If you can't pay bribe you will be jailed
3. Never cross modi & his missions

If these #pets can be complained against in #498a, #donkeys can also be arrested for eating grass not grown for them!
