Mumbai: The Mumbai Police arrested one more person in the Bulli Bai app case from Odisha on Thursday, January 20.
The accused, Neeraj Singh, was arrested by a team of Mumbai Police cyber cell, officials said.
The accused is an MBA degree holder. He was involved in the planning of the app with the main accused, sources said.
Earlier, Vishal Jha, Shweta Singh, Mayank Rawal, and Niraj Bishnoi were arrested in connection with the 'Bulli Bai' case pertaining to a GitHub app where images of Muslim women were uploaded for 'auction'. They were sent to police custody.
A 19-year-old woman and an engineering student from Bengaluru were among the three arrested by the Mumbai police earlier this month.
The Delhi Police, which is also investigating the case, has also made arrests in the case. Bishnoi, the 'Bulli Bai' app creator, was arrested by Delhi Police Special Cell's Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations unit team from Assam.
The Mumbai police registered an FIR in the case following complaints made by several women, who were targeted by the 'Bulli Bai' app.
The Bulli Bai app (now blocked by GitHub) is the second case of this kind of sexual harassment and cyber-bullying targeting women from the minority community.
On January 1, this app, posted photos of a number of Muslim women. These included journalists, social workers, students, and famous personalities.
It happened six months after the controversy of Sulli Deals. 'Sulli' is a derogatory slang word used by the right-wing against Muslim women in India.
