I would like to know how to avoid Indian spam bots that bids for projects automatically, it's been like that for years on Freelancer, for every project or contest I usually have to reject 75% of the spam/fake/bots contestants ;)

Oh yeah this is a big problem, the easies method i find clients doing to weed out automated bids is adding a direct question in the project description or a clause at the bottom like “if you read the description write NOTABOT at the bottom of your proposal”, the automated bids will ignore your question/request so you should be left with only real bids.
