Though the obscene tweets were removed, several tweets were re-tweeted. The hacker seemed to be in control of Gandhi's account for a long time even though the tweets were removed.

Rahul Gandhi's office is said to have complained to the cyber cell. The hackers also removed Rahul's profile picture and changed the title of the account from @OfficeOfRG to an abusive one.
