Bulli Bai app case: Niraj claims hacking of websites


New Delhi, Jan 8 (UNI) Delhi Police on Saturday said the creator of Bulli Bai app, a 21-year-old from Assam, claimed that he has been hacking and defacing the websites of schools and Universities of India, as well as of Pakistan.

KPS Malhotra, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations Unit), said his claim of hacking the websites related to schools has been verified from concerned persons.

Niraj Bishnoi, who was arrested on Thursday in connection with an app defaming Muslim women, said he was the real mastermind behind the social media account, which had illegally put up photographs of women to show that they were on “auction”.

Niraj claimed that he has been hacking and learning the same since he was 15.

Malhotra said that Niraj is trying to delay the investigation and not co-operating in interrogation. He also tried to harm himself twice and threatened to commit suicide.

Niraj had an inclination towards a gaming character in the Japanese animation ‘GIYU’. He had created various Twitter handles using the word GIYU, through which he had challenged the law enforcement agencies to nab him, added the DCP.

Malhotra said Niraj further disclosed that he was in touch with the persons arrested by Mumbai Police in the virtual world and used to chat through Twitter group chats. He had never met those persons and even did not have their contact numbers.

According to police, he was also in touch with the creator of Twitter handle @sullideals, who had created the ‘sulli deals’ app on GitHub and he had also propagated the same. His claim has been verified from the involvement of a Twitter account used by him in an FIR registered at Kishangarh police station in Delhi.

In the FIR, a Twitter account used by him had tweeted the photograph of a woman for auction. His claim of being in touch with the creator of ‘sullideals’ app is being verified. Further, technical analysis is being done to identify the person. Forensic examination of the technical devices is underway, police said.
