The complaint has been lodged,” Meghwal, later, said in a tweet through his different Twitter account. The minister has nearly 32,000 followers on Twitter.

The hackers were believed to be from Pakistan as the texts had references from ISI and slogans praising the neighbouring country.

Cyber attacks and hacking have been recently in the news after a group called Legion hacked the official Twitter accounts of Congress VP Rahul Gandhi, businessman Vijay Mallya and even the Indian National Congress.

The group posted abusive tweets from all these accounts. They even went on to provide details about Vijay Mallya, including his passport, residency permit in the UK, domestic and overseas assets, letters and more.
