Claiming to retaliate the defacement of Pakistani websites by Indian hackers, a Pakistan hacker defaced pages on eight Indian government websites on Thursday and posted objectionable messages on them.

According to zone-h.org, a website which runs a mirror of all the defaced or hacked websites, the Pakistani hacker is identified as ‘KhantastiC haXOr.' Four sites belonging to the Indian telecom giant BSNL, a website of the Indian Meteorological Department in Kolkata (www.imdkolkata.gov.in/webdata), the Jute Corporation of India (www.jci.gov.in), and a webpage on the website of Chennai Metro Rail (http:// chennaimetrorail.gov.in/logs) have been defaced.
