New Delhi, Nov 30: The Congress on Thursday filed a complaint with the cyber cell of the Delhi Police after the Twitter account of the party's vice president Rahul Gandhi was hacked.
The official Twitter account of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi appeared to have been hacked on Wednesday evening. A series of abusive tweets were sent out from the handle to its million followers.
The handle seems to have been hacked by a group called 'legion', which they mentioned it in one of their tweets. The first few tweets were deleted shortly after being posted around 8.45pm. But more offensive tweets kept showing up on the Twitter account
every few minutes even after being deleted immediately.
The hackers even changed the twitter handle name from 'Office of Rahul Gandhi' to 'Office of Retard Gandhi'.
Earlier, Congress leader and chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said that they will lodge a formal complaint with cyber police.
Late in the evening, Surjewala also tweeted ''Such lowly tactics will never drown the sane voice of reason nor deter Sh. Rahul Gandhi from raising." Such unscrupulous, unethical and roguish conduct of venal trolls to hack Rahul Gandhi's Twitter handle reflects disturbing insecurities of prevalent fascist culture," he added.
