‘Bulli Bai’ app case: Delhi court rejects anticipatory bail to Vishal Jha

Vishal Jha’s anticipatory bail denied by Patiala court

New Delhi:  The Patiala House Court’s Session Court rejected the anticipatory bail petition of Vishal Sudhir Kumar Jha in relation to the ‘Bulli Bai’ app case and said that the allegation against the applicant (Vishal Sudhirkumar Jha) is grave in nature as it is a direct onslaught upon the dignity and modesty of the woman of a particular community.

Additional Session Judge Dharmender Rana while passing the order in the case said, “I concur with the Additional Public Prosecutor that to unravel the obscure and undetected aspects of the crime, sustained custodial interrogation of the applicant is desirable. Considering the totality of circumstances, I do not find any merit in the application at hand and the same is accordingly dismissed.”


Meanwhile, a Mumbai Court while rejecting bail to the three accused in the Bulli Bai case on Thursday said that merely because they were not creators of the app, they could not be termed as innocent.

The order passed by Metropolitan Magistrate at Bandra Komal Singh Rajput stated, “…they were arrested for collection of evidence relating to non-bailable offence and hence, their arrest is not in violation of any law. They found to be committed serious acts defaming womanhood. The larger interest of society is at stake, therefore, their personal liberty can be said to be curtailed without following due process of law,” Bar and Bench reported.

The Mumbai Police on Thursday arrested another person from Odisha’s Jharsuguda in connection with the ‘Bulli Bai’ case.

The cyber police of the Mumbai crime branch on Saturday intercepted Niraj Singh, a 28-year-old MBA graduate from the Lamtibahal area under Brajrajnagar Police limits. He was reportedly involved in planning the app with the main accused who was arrested earlier.– IANS
