On April 8, some suspicious activities were apparent in the systems. It was then noticed that the email accounts had been hacked. Immediately an FIR was lodged stating "officials found that amethi.net website is not accessible". The web servers, amethinet and raebareli are maintained by Rahul Gandhi's personal team of experts from his bunglow.
The FIR was filed under 66 Information Technology Act. "Technically, the hacker has cracked the whole domain system of the server and used an email to get the passwords," said a senior officer from the Special cell of Delhi police (Investigative Team).
The hacking took place between April 4 and 19. The young MP's house is also a hub of policymaking for the Youth Congress and the systems store huge databases in terms of constituencies, individuals and trends.
Amethinet and raebareli were created to address the constituents. Infact, the e-mail IDs created for password recovery was also hacked. The log in user name and the password for firstname.lastname@example.org were not working, as said the reports of investigation.
The Special Investigative team is still hunting for the unknown hacker.
