Recently, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter account was hacked and the hacker posted abusive content from his account about him and the Gandhi family. Not only his account, Indian National Congress’ official Twitter account was also hacked. Guess what, the same group Legion also hacked industrialist Vijay Mallya’s account and have been posting in what they claim his private details.

They have shared his address and phone number in London. In a series of tweets, the hackers shared the list of cars they claim he has, some documents on his investment and other details pertaining to his residency in London. According to their tweets, they have launched a fight against ‘corrupt’ people. They also tweeted that they’ll release a couple of documents over the next few days and will also release Congress emails on New Year.

Mallya realised his account has been hacked and tweeted, “My account has been hacked by some one called Legion who are Tweeting now in my name. Simply ignore. Will fix this .Outfit called Legion has hacked my e-mail accounts and are blackmailing me !! What a joke.”

The outfit, perhaps, hacked his account again and tweeted from his account, “We did not blackmail Mallya, any and all rumours are assumptions and fake! He is creating propaganda.” Believe it or not, it was the pinned tweet for over an hour!

The tweets have recently been deleted but Twitterati can’t stop joking about it.
