Hackers show J&K Governor as Imran ‘follower’

Some miscreants on Tuesday hacked the Twitter handle of Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik and showed him as a follower of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The moment it was noticed, necessary corrections were made to the account, said a Raj Bhawan spokesman. “The Imran Khan Twitter handle was unfollowed. The matter has been reported to the J&K Police to take necessary follow-up action as per the law,” the spokesman added.

The development, however, attracted sarcastic remarks from former Chief Minister and National Conference vice-president Omar Abdullah. “Very kind “hacker”. He/she only used his/her access to follow Imran Khan and then quietly left the account access untouched. Raj Bhavan was able to immediately undo this one change. If I ever get hacked God please give me such a kind hearted hacker (sic),” tweeted Mr. Abdullah.
