In today's episode of 'What's weird on Twitter?", we have officially killed a gangster and resurrected him within minutes.

On Friday, news broke out on Twitter that gangster Chhota Rajan, who is currently undergoing treatment for COVID-19 at AIIMS, Delhi, has passed away. Several media outlets followed suit and spread the news to the entire country. Twitterati shared those reports and celebrated that the world is now inhabited by one less gangster.

However, we witnessed all this chaos, only to find out that Rajan is very much alive.

AIIMS officials informed news agency ANI that the gangster is alive. ANI tweeted, "Underworld don Chhota Rajan is still alive. He is admitted at AIIMS for treatment of #COVID19: AIIMS official."

Whether the gangster lives or dies is of little importance to Twitterati. What's important? Memes, memes and only memes. A gangster can escape death, but not memes. Within minutes of this national-level misunderstanding, Twitterati gathered to make memes and believe us, they are hilarious!

So, whether you are shocked by the news, surprised, annoyed or indifferent, here are some of the funniest memes about this fiasco that will make you laugh nevertheless.

Laugh out loud!
