Bulli Bai app case accused also implicated in Sulli Deals: Police notify court

Mumbai Police’s Cyber ​​Cell on Monday objected to the bail requests of the three people arrested in the ‘Bulli Bai’ app case, saying the investigation suggested the defendants were also implicated in the “Sulli Deals” app case.

Opposing the bail applications of Vishal Kumar Jha, Shweta Singh and Mayank Rawat in the Bulli Bai app case, the Mumbai Crime Branch Cyber ​​Cell has filed a response in a city court of Mumbai stating that according to the preliminary investigation, the accused committed the crime with the help of Niraj Bishnoi, creator of the Bulli Bai app who was arrested by the Delhi police.

The court released the case for a rehearing on Tuesday.

Police, while asking the court to reject the three defendants’ bail applications, argued that they “could flee or tamper with evidence in the case”.

During the hearing, the police added that a team had been sent to Delhi to seek custody of two other people, Niraj Bishnoi, arrested in the case of the Bulli Bai application filed by the Delhi police, and an Omkareshvara Thakur, apprehended in the Sulli deals app case.

Police said the defendants were “very active on social media and posted material that could disturb the peace in society”.

A Delhi court had earlier rejected Thakur and Bishnoi’s bail applications.

Niraj Bishnoi (20), a B.Tech student, was arrested in Assam by the Intelligence and Strategic Operations Fusion Unit (IFSO) team of the Delhi Police Special Cell for his involvement suspected in the Bulli Bai case.

A Bandra court had earlier sent co-defendants Shweta Singh and Mayank Rawat in the Bulli Bai app case to judicial detention for 14 days until January 28. Prior to that, they had been taken into custody by the Mumbai Cyber ​​Cell Police until January 14. January 5.

Vishal Kumar Jha was taken into custody on 24 January.
