‘Bulli Bai’ case solved with mastermind’s arrest from Jorhat, says Delhi police

An engineering student believed to be the “mastermind” and creator of the “Bulli Bai” app was arrested on Thursday from Jorhat in Assam and brought to the national capital where he confessed his role, Delhi Police said. With the arrest of Niraj Bishnoi, 21, Delhi Police said in a statement it has solved completely the case related to hundreds of Muslim women being listed for “auction” on the “Bulli Bai” app on the Github platform.

Bishnoi, a resident of Jorhat who studies computer science engineering in Bhopal, is the fourth person to be arrested for their alleged involvement in the app. The other three, nabbed by Mumbai Police, include a 19-year-old woman from Uttarakhand, also alleged to be a prime accused in the case.

“You have arrested the wrong person, slumbai police,” Bishnoi had tweeted a day before his arrest.

“Lmao only one guy was ever involved and that’s me. You pajeets arrested a follower of that acc with sikh dp, who had nothing to do with the app and didn’t tweet anything wrong. Do you have even the slightest bit of shame slumbai pulis?” he said.

A team from Mumbai was also on its way to arrest Bishnoi but got delayed because of flight schedules and its Delhi counterparts got there an hour earlier, a Mumbai Police official said. The cyber cell will seek Bishnoi’s custody later, the official said.

Later, a court sent Bishnoi to seven-day custody of Delhi Police. Bishnoi is a second year B Tech student at the Vellore Institute of Technology in the Madhya Pradesh capital, the DCP said.
