What is the Bulli Bai controversy?
Bulli Bai is an app that was hosted (currently removed) in Github(An online hosting platform for Coders). It was an app designed for fake auctions of 100 Muslim girls’ photos, these were photos from the internet where there were photos of girls from prominent families, journalism, and finally civil society. Here people would buy these from bidding on an auction.
People Behind Bulli Bai
Mayank Rawat, the son of Army Subedar Pradeep Rawat, is a Zakir Hussain College Chemistry honors student in Delhi. Mayank, a native of Kotdwar’s Nimbhuchaud neighborhood, had returned home for the holidays. Mayank said that he had clicked a link he had got for the Bulli Bai app and published a few screenshots he had taken from the app on the microblogging site Twitter after being detained. Mayank and Vishal were marketing Bulli Bai stuff on the internet. Vishal, who was apprehended in Bengaluru, gave the identity of the main suspect. Vishal’s college, Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering, has stated that it would not take any disciplinary action against him in the issue, according to The Quint.
Shweta Singh, the youngest of the suspects and the putative “mastermind” of the conspiracy, was detained on Tuesday in Rudrapur, Uttarakhand’s Udham Singh Nagar district. Shweta is one of four siblings, including two sisters, according to an India Today story. She is an orphan as well, having just lost her father to Covid-19 and her mother to cancer.
Shweta was accused of using a phony Twitter account called “JattKhalsa07” that promoted hatred and communal messages.
How Bulli Bai app creator Neeraj Bishnoi was tracked down by Delhi Police
Neeraj Bishnoi was arrested by police yesterday from Asshat’s Jorhat district.
On the same day, he appeared in court and was sentenced to seven days in police custody.
According to sources, Bishnoi, an Assamese resident, was tracked down through digital surveillance of a Twitter handle he made, @bullibai_, which has since been suspended.
After first being blocked by GitHub, the app has now been deleted.
According to sources, the app was constructed in November and released on December 31, at which point a new Twitter handle – @sage0x1 – was created to spread the word.
After the three earlier arrests, Bishnoi reportedly formed the @giyu44 handle, which he used to insult Mumbai Cops, referring to them as “slumbai police.”
That handle, which is still active, has a history of abusive tweets, as well as a pinned tweet with a collection of screenshots mocking cops for their arrests and a ‘confession.’

“You have arrested the wrong person, slumbai police… I am the creator of #BulliBaiApp… Got nothing to do with the two innocents whom u arrested, release them asap…” the tweet reads.
It was published at 10:42 a.m. on Wednesday, one day after Shweta Singh, 19, was detained.
Following Mayank Rawal, 21, Shweta Singh, and Vishal Kumar Jha, Bishnoi is the fourth individual to be detained in connection with the ‘Bulli Bai’ app.
In a case that has sparked worldwide outrage over the despicable targeting of Muslim women journalists and activists online, Mumbai Police have identified Singh as the “mastermind.”
According to sources, there is currently no direct relationship between Singh, who is from Uttarakhand and has been characterized by authorities as “the brain behind the app,” and Bishnoi.
