3 accused got bail in Bully Bai app case, targeted

However, bail applications of two other accused in this case were rejected. (file)

Mumbai: A court on Tuesday granted bail to three students arrested in the Bulli Bai app case.

The app targeted Muslim women by making their details public and allowing users to participate in their “auctions”.

Bandra Court Magistrate KC Rajput granted bail to Vishal Kumar Jha, Shweta Singh and Mayank Agarwal. Earlier, both the magistrate and the sessions court had refused to grant them bail, and the trio again filed their plea after the police filed a chargesheet in the case.

Jha, in his bail plea filed through advocate Shivam Deshmukh, claimed that the magistrates and sessions courts rejected his application only on the ground that the investigation was still on.

At that time the court had ruled that the applicant had technical knowledge and could, therefore, destroy evidence, but today the circumstances have changed as the police have completed their investigation and filed a charge sheet, in Jha’s bail plea. The argument has been made.

However, the bail applications of two other accused in the case, Omkareshwar Thakur and Neeraj Singh, were rejected by the Bandra magistrate’s court during the day.

Detailed bail orders have not been made available yet.
