Who Is Aumkareshwar Thakur?
Talking about Aumkareshwar Thakur, he has a degree in BCA (Bachelor of Computer Application) which he has gotten from IPS Academy located in Indore. Reportedly, Thakur had developed the codes that he further used for the Sulli Deals app on GitHub. Every member of the group was able to access the app on GitHub. The 25-year-old had shared the aforementioned app on his own Twitter account while it was also added that the group members used to upload the photos of those Muslim women with the intention to troll them.
