Traffic Police's Twitter handle hacked, probe initiated

New Delhi, July 11

The Twitter handle of the Delhi Traffic Police was hacked for a few minutes last night, following which it was restored and a probe was initiated in the matter, a senior police officer said today.

Around 11.30 pm yesterday, a couple of messages were posted from the Twitter handle of the traffic police. One of the messages read: "Message me at Twitter.Com/justinformentin if you'd like to know how to fix this! (sic)."

Another message read: "Not a Traffic Alert. Justin Forementin is tweeting on the Delhi Traffic Police Twitter. Hey guys! (sic)."

The officer said the Twitter handle was hacked for a brief period but the password was changed within minutes and it was restored.

"We have forwarded a complaint to the DCP Cyber Cell and they have launched a probe to identify the hackers," he added. — TNS
