A young man from Madhya Pradesh has been arrested for making the Sulli Deals App, which ‘auctioned’ Muslim women without permission and used their images by doctoring them. Aumkareshwar Thakur made this app on GitHub and shared it on Twitter earlier in 2021.
‘Sulli Deals’ and the recently created ‘Bulli Bai’ apps upload photos of Muslim women in a bid to trigger ‘commentary’ by the app’s users. Most of these comments were derogatory and inappropriate. Both apps were built on Github.
The accused, Aumkareshwar Thakur, was arrested by the Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations (IFSO) of Delhi Police in Indore in Madhya Pradesh. He is being called main mastermind in the Sulli deal app case.
Aumkareshwar Thakur 26 years old and studied at the IPS Academy in Indore.
