Bhubaneshwar, Feb 2: Orissa chief minister Naveen Patnaik was at the receiving end of vicious mails sent by a hacker, from the official email id of newly-formed central University of Koraput.
The official id of the university's Vice Chancellor Surabhi Banerjee was hacked and four hate mails were sent to the Chief Minister, among others.
"Someone has hacked the official id of the university and sent some vicious mail to different people including the Chief Minister. This is shocking," said Banerjee.
The university authorities have lodged a complain with the police.
"I have already complained to the police about the foul play and furnished all the documents to the police in this regard," she added.
The investigation into the incident is on.
Just ahead of the Republic Day, a threatening mail asking for the release of the Subhashree, the wife of wanted Maoist leader Sabyasachi Panda, was mailed to the Chief Minister's Office.
