One such complaint came from a Twitter user who tweeted photos of a car using the now-bannedlal batti. In April this year, use of the infamous red beacon by politicians and government officials was banned with the exception of ambulances, fire engine and police vans. The man promptly tweeted photos of the defaulter, also tagging Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in the tweet.
"VIP culture. The occupants claimed that it is bomb squad & is permitted. Laughable," he informed in the tweet.
The following day, Mumbai Police responded with information about the occupants.
"Sir, D (sic) VIPs in d (sic) car R (sic) Max & Tyson who indeed have d (sic) permission to choose the fastest route as they r (sic) on call & rushing to sniff a bomb out!," said the tweet.
Along with the tweet, adorable photos of the "VIPs", which we guess means - Very Important Puppers, right?

And it's safe to say the complainant and others on Twitter were fully satisfied with the response.
