Several reports had then claimed that the website was hacked by Chinese hackers as it showed a Chinese character which translates to ‘Zen’. Following this, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had tweeted that “Action is initiated after the hacking of MoD website (http://mod.nic.in). The website shall be restored shortly. Every possible step required to prevent any such eventuality in the future will be taken.”

The website of the Supreme Court crashed today, minutes after the top court ruled that there will be no independent probe into the death of Judge BH Loya, who died while hearing the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case. In this case, Amit Shah was an accused.48-year-old Judge Loya was hearing the Sohrabuddin fake encounter case, in which Amit Shah was an accused when he died from heart attack in Maharashtra’s Nagpur, where he was attending a wedding. The judge who replaced judge Loya ruled there was not sufficient evidence against Amit Shah to merit a trial and discharged the BJP chief.

Hackers hacked the All India Football Federation’s websites in May 2017. During this time, he wrote about Kulbhushan Jadhav that he would send his dead body. After a while, the website was restored.
