As part of the ‘auction’, doctored photographs of the targets, who spanned age groups, were put up on social media networks.

Now what was the Bulli Bai controversy? Well, On January 1, this app, which was operating from Github’s space, posted photos of several women of a particular religion. These included journalists, social workers, students, and famous personalities.

It happened six months after the controversy of Sulli Deals. Vishal Kumar Jha, the engineering student, was one of the followers of Bulli Bai, which led the police to him. Hosting platform Github provided space to Sulli Deals, and the ‘Bulli Bai too was created on the Github platform. Later on after the controversy erupted, Github removed the user ‘Bulli Bai’ from its hosting platform. But by then ‘Bulli Bai’ had sparked a nationwide controversy.
