Several politcal leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s personal handle were targeted by hackers in the past.
In December last year, the Centre’s cyber security win CERT-In ordered a high-level inquiry after hackers posted a tweet from PM Modi’s handle claiming that India has “officially adopted bitcoin as legal tender”.
