New Delhi:

A Delhi court has rejected the bail plea of ​​Bulli Bai creator Niraj Bishnoi, saying a smear campaign against women containing derogatory content and offensive material with community overtones was waged on the app created by the accused.

Metropolitan Chief Magistrate Pankaj Sharma said that given the enormity of the allegation and the stage of the investigation, no grounds are established for granting bail at this stage.

The court declared: “Bail refused” and added that the investigation into this matter was at the initial stage. The police are in the process of collecting evidence and identifying the involvement of others in this disdainful act.

The court noted that the defendant’s act is apparently an affront to the dignity of women in a particular community and to the communal harmony of society.

The court also noted that the facts reveal that the defendant created the “‘Bulli Bai” application where female journalists and celebrities from a particular community who are famous on social media are targeted and they are projected under a bad day in order to insult and humiliate them through objectification.

Several complaints have been received by police stations across the country regarding the listing of Muslim women for ‘auction’ on the ‘Bulli Bai’ mobile app with unauthorized and doctored photographs.

This happened for the second time in less than a year. The app appeared to be a clone of “Sulli Deals” which sparked a similar row last year.

An engineering student from Bengaluru, a young girl from Uttarakhand and one of her friends have also been arrested by Mumbai police in connection with the “Bulli Bai” app case.
