Court grants bail to 3 defendants in Bulli Bai App case

The city’s Civil and Sessions Court on Tuesday granted bail to three defendants in the Bulli Bai App case, which was set up to “auction” Muslim women by tampering with their photographs.

Neeraj Singh, 28, an MBA graduate, was arrested in Odisha by Mumbai Police Cyber ​​Cell on January 20, 2022. Another defendant, Neeraj Bishnoi, believed to be the main conspirator in the case, was arrested by Delhi Police from Assam and was brought to Mumbai on Thursday. The third, Aumkareshwar Thakur, was arrested by Delhi police and would be charged in the Sulli Deals case, a similar app that posted photos of Muslim women.

The indictment filed by Mumbai police in March said Mr Bishnoi was the first to share the link of the Bulli Bai app on his Twitter group and that members of the group were fully aware that it would be used to target Muslim women. He had asked a co-defendant to send photographs of 100 “non-BJP famous Muslim women” to be auctioned off.

On January 1, 2022, the Western Region Cyber ​​Police Station had filed an FIR against the affected Twitter handles and the developer of “Bulli Bai” for violations of Sections 153A (promoting enmity on religious grounds, etc.), 153B (imputations prejudicial to national integration), 295A (insult to religious beliefs), 354D (harassment), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman), 500 (criminal defamation) of Indian Penal Code and Section 67 (Publication or Transmission of Obscene Material in Electronic Form) of the Information Technology Act.
