My son is being falsely implicated, says 'Sulli Deals' app creator Aumkareshwar Thakur's father

New Delhi: 

Hours after Delhi Police arrested ‘Sulli Deals’ mastermind Aumkareshwar Thakur, his father said his 26-year-old son is innocent and is being falsely implicated. He also said he would travel to national capital to meet the cyber crime officials.

Police on Sunday arrested Aumkareshwar Thakur stating that he wrote codes for ‘Sulli Deals’ app and is the “mastermind” in the case.

“Aumkareshwar Thakur, Sulli Deals app creator, and mastermind has been arrested from Indore. He was the member of Trad-Group on Twitter made to troll Muslim women,” said DCP KPS Malhotra, Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations (IFSO), Delhi Police Special Cell.

The police said while interrogating ‘Bulli Bai’ app case mastermind Neeraj Bishnoi, they found evidence that helped them arrest Aumkareshwar Thakur. 

“He is being interrogated and his laptop is under forensic examination,” DCP KPS Malhotra said.

Aumkareshwar’s father Akhilesh Thakur told new agency ANI that he works with a private firm and was out of Indore on Saturday for some work. “Around 5 pm  or 6 pm, he had called me informing me that he is at the airport and is being taken to Delhi by Cyber Crime Branch. Around 2 pm, two officers took Aumkareshwar along with his laptop and phone. He (Aumkareshwar) is a web designer by profession and is being falsely implicated. I will meet the officials in Delhi,” he added.

Akhilesh Thakur also said the officers took Aumkareshwar from Indore on the pretext of being friends. “They just came and asked Aumkareshwar to tag along and he did,” the man’s father said.

Both ‘Sulli Deal’ and ‘Bulli Bai’ applications were allegedly used to upload photos of Muslim women without their consent and inappropriate remarks were passed against them. Both the apps used the hosting platform ‘GITHUB’ to auction the stolen photos.
