Hackers Tuesday defaced the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) library website and left a message for alleged “traitors” and “anti-nationals” on the campus, claiming that India “kills each and every person who will go against the nation.”The hacking, which reportedly took place in the evening, left the website inaccessible for hours.

“The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later,” read a message on the website late at night. JNU Registrar Bupinder Zutshi said: “I got to know around 7 pm that the site has been hacked. We are working to restore the website.”
