[Bulli Bai] Niraj Bishnoi bail plea rejected by Delhi court

The case has its genesis in an app ‘Bulli bai’ which appeared on open source platform GitHub.

The app put out details of more than 100 prominent Muslim women allowing users to participate in an ‘auction’ of those women.

It triggered an outrage and based on complaints by women who had been targeted by the app, the Mumbai Police and Delhi Police registered separate first information reports.

The Delhi Police registered an FIR against unidentified persons for offences under Sections 153A (promoting enmity on grounds of religion etc), 153B (imputations prejudicial to national-integration), 354A (sexual harassment) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

It later arrested Bishnoi from Assam.

The Mumbai Police has so far made three arrests – Vishal Jha, Mayank Rawat and Shweta Singh.
