In the case of the Bulli Bai app, a petition was filed in the Supreme Court, asking for a ban on Muslim women being auctioned

The Bully bai app case has been demanded to be investigated under sections 120 and other parts of the IPC, as well as the sources of funding, money trail, and the mastermind who built the software.

In the Bulli Bai App case, the Supreme Court has received a written petition. A written petition was sent to the Chief Justice by the Delhi High Court Women Lawyers Forum.  There is a call in the petition for a complete prohibition on the auctions on the Bulli Bai App. A request has been filed to have the case probed under additional provisions of the IPC, notably section 120.

In addition, information on the app’s funding sources, money trail, and inquiry of the app’s creator were demanded in the petition.   The Supreme Court should issue appropriate directions to each district’s DM and SP to avoid pushing for genocide against minority populations, maligning minorities, and spreading false information, according to the petition. The Central and State Governments have been asked to provide appropriate directives in this respect.

Its mastermind has been arrested in Assam.

Since January 1, 2021, there has been a hubbub in the Bully By App case. This software was intended to humiliate Muslim women and profit off their auctions. The Bully by app was developed on GitHub, a Microsoft-owned open source software development platform. So far, there have been a lot of discoveries in this case. The mastermind was apprehended in Assam by the Delhi Police Special Cell’s IFSC (Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Ops) squad. The Delhi Police have also stated that Neeraj is the brains behind the Bulli Bai app, which he built on GitHub.

What was the app’s purpose?

Not only that, but Neeraj built a Twitter account called ‘Bully by Under Score’ to market the programme. Later, it became very popular on social media. This information was obtained through his phone and laptop, which were discovered in his possession. According to authorities, Neeraj Bishnoi aged 21, is the main conspirator, was arrested for his suspected involvement in the app, which listed hundreds of Muslim women for auction.

So far, four people have been arrested in the case.

Three persons were detained in the case before Neeraj was caught in Assam. A Bangalore engineer, an 18-year-old girl called Shweta, and a boy from Uttarakhand were arrested in this case. Vishal Kumar Jha was detained in Bangalore, while Shweta Singh and Mayank Rawat, both class 12 students, were arrested in Uttarakhand and sent to Mumbai.
