New Delhi: After tightening the noose on Bulli Bai app, Delhi Police have also arrested Aumkareshwar Thakur the mastermind of Sulli Deals.
Now, the app maker Aumkareshwar Thakur has been sent to four days of police custody by a court. This arrest comes at a time, when a debate broke out in the country regarding Bulli Bai app as many dignitaries, including celebrities, started demanding action on this app. However, the police have arrested four persons in the Bulli Bai case, but this is the first arrest in the Sully Deals case.
What is 'Sulli deals App' after all?
According to several media reports, it has appeared that Sulli is a derogatory term used against Muslim women. On July 4, 2021, several screenshots were shared on Twitter in the name of Sully Deals. The app had a tag line, 'Sully Deal of the Day and it was shared with photos of Muslim women. Notably, it was created by an unknown group on GitHub. A complaint was also lodged in this matter, but no action was taken on it for several months.
How was the conspiracy hatched?
The makers of the app illegally collect pictures of Muslim women from various social media accounts and troll their pictures by writing objectionable content on them. Images are used incorrectly.
There are pictures of many women on the app, on which it is written with a picture of a woman, 'Your bully by the day' .... These pictures were also being shared and auctioned. Meanwhile, shreds of evidence were deleted after the uproar. Special cell DCP KPS Malhotra in Delhi confirmed that Aumkareshwar Thakur, the app creator of Sully Deals, has been arrested.
Thakur confessed that he created the Sully Deals app on GitHub in July 2021. Photos of several Muslim women were uploaded from the app for auction without their consent.
Thakur had joined the group called TradeMahasabha on Twitter in January 2020 using the Twitter handle @gangescion. The members had hatched a conspiracy to troll Muslim women.
