Senior journalist and the consulting editor of NDTV Barkha Dutt became the latest victim of hacking group Legion. This comes days after the same group hacked Twitter handles of Rahul Gandhi, Indian National Congress and industrialist Vijay Mallya.

The hackers have also tweeted out her email address and its password, while glorifying the group saying “Long live the legion”.

The tweets, which contained offensive language, were deleted immediately. However, the above uploaded tweet is still pinned on top.

Earlier this week, the group had shared liquor baron Mallya’s address and phone number in London in addition to some documents on his investment and other details pertaining to his residency in London. According to the hackers, they have launched a fight against ‘corrupt’ people. They had also tweeted that they’ll release a couple of documents over the next few days and will also release Congress emails on New Year.

More details are awaited.
