‘Bulli Bai’ app case: Mumbai Police detains 21 years old Bangalore student

Mumbai: The Mumbai Cyber Cell today detained a 21-year-old student from Bangalore for questioning in connection with the ‘Bulli Bai’ app case.

Mumbai DCP Rashmi Karandikar is investigating the case after registering a case.

On the other hand, the Delhi Police have sought information from Twitter about the account that first tweeted about the ‘Bulli Bai’ app and asked it to remove the offensive content.

Initially, a Delhi-based woman journalist lodged a complaint with the Delhi Police stating that she was being targeted by some unidentified group of people on a mobile application named ‘Bulli Bai’ created on GitHub platform.

“Bulli Bai”, popped up on January 1, with a number of pictures of women including journalists, social workers, students and famous personalities, accompanied by derogatory content.

The police also sought information from software development platform GitHub about the ‘Bulli Bai’ app developer.

The woman journalist in her complaint had stated that she found out on January 1 morning that a website portal called bullibai.github.io had a doctored picture of her in an improper, unacceptable and clearly lewd context.

“The term Bulli Bai itself seems disrespectful and the content of this website/portal is clearly aimed at insulting Muslim women as the derogatory term ‘Bulli’ is used exclusively for Muslim women,” read the complaint.
