December 5, 2021: A Telegram app which was sharing photos of Hindu women and abusing them, has been blocked, Union Minister for Electronics and Information Technology Ashwini Vaishnaw said. The government is coordinating with 'police authorities of states for action'.



The app was using pictures of Hindu women without their consent to abuse them. This comes within days of the government blocking the Bulli Bai app where Muslim women were targeted and their pictures were used for a virtual auction.



Police is investigating the Bulli Bai case and three people have been arrested.



Sources in the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeiTY) have said that it is closely monitoring the Bulli Bai app case through its Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN). CERT-IN is coordinating with GitHub, Twitter, Delhi Police and Mumbai Police in the matter.
