The main accused in the “Bulli Bai” app case – Neeraj Bishnoi from Assam’s Jorhat – has been threatening the Delhi police with suicide.
“He tried to harm himself twice and is also threatening to commit suicide. Due care is being taken of him,” Delhi police’s IFSO team, which is leading the investigation, said.
Neeraj Bishnoi allegedly created the infamous “Bulli Bai” app, which was used by right-winged fanatics to ‘auction’ Muslim women.
“The accused has confessed that he knows the creators of ‘Sulli Deal’, the app where Muslim women were auctioned. He has also accepted that he has access to the user account of Sweta Singh, who has been arrested by Mumbai police,” informed Delhi police DCP of IFSO – KPS Malhotra.
The “Bulli Bai” app was a clone of “Sulli Deals”.
‘Sulli’ is a derogatory slang word used by the right-winged fanatics against Muslim women in India.
The Delhi police further informed that accused Neeraj Bishnoi is a “habitual hacker since he was 15 years old”.
DCP of IFSO special cell – KPS Malhotra, who led the entire operation to arrest Bishnoi, said: “He had previously hacked and defaced websites of several Indian and Pakistani schools and universities. The authorities are looking into his claims of hacking school-related websites.”
