Embattled liquor baron Vijay Mallya on Friday said his Twitter and e-mail accounts have been hacked and some of his personal and financial details, including passwords, addresses and phone number, were posted.
“My account has been hacked by someone 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,” Mallya tweeted earlier on Friday morning.
The hacker, called ‘Legion’, has threatened to expose more financial details of Mallya in coming days.
The group, however, denied that they ever blackmailed the liquor baron, “We did not blackmail Mallya, any and all rumours are assumptions and fake! He is creating propaganda,” hackers tweeted through Mallaya’s handle @TheVijayMallya.
The hackers have put information like Mallaya’s account details, passwords, statements, number of cars he owns, etc.
In one of the messages, the hackers even threatened Rahul Gandhi on his official handles and said that he has not been forgotten by them.
