New Delhi, January 9 (IANS): Aumkareshwar Thakur, the alleged creator of “Sulli Deals”, knew the police would be on their trail after the outcry over the app to “auction” Muslim women and had removed all of his social media fingerprints in an attempt to to escape detection, police sources said on Sunday.
“It’s very sharp and technically sound. It had deleted a lot of data around 10GB. We hope we can find more evidence once the data is recovered,” a source said.
Thakur, who holds a BCA from IPS Academy in Indore, was detained from the city by a team from the Delhi Police Special Cell.
During a preliminary interrogation, he admitted that he was a member of a group “Trad” on Twitter where the idea of defaming and trolling Muslim women was shared.
Joining the “Tradmahasabha” group in January 2020 using the @gangescion Twitter account, he participated in various group discussions on Muslim women trolling.
He had developed the code on GitHub, accessible to all members of the group. He had shared the app on his Twitter account and photos of the Muslim women had been uploaded by members of the group.
After the outcry over the app, he removed all of his social media fingerprints.
The special unit analyzes the technical gadgets in more detail to discover the codes / images linked to the “Sulli Deals” application.
Police sources also claimed to have identified a few people who were helping him.
However, so far, police have not found any connection between him and the creator of “Bulli Bai”.
