Singer Adnan Sami’s Twitter account was allegedly hacked on Tuesday by Ayyildiz Tim, the same Turkish hacker group, which attacked megastar Amitabh Bachchan microblogging page a day ago.
Similar to how Amitabh Bachchan’s profile picture was altered, the group replaced Adnan Sami’s profile picture with a photo of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and changed the bio, adding “Ayyildiz Tim Love Pakistan” with an emoji of Pakistani and Turkish flags.
They also pinned a tweet similar to the one posted on Big B’s Twitter account earlier. The tweet read, “Who ever shows the courage to betrayal our brother country Pakistan know that you will see Pakistan’s prime ministers photo and pakistan flag as profile picture. Ayyildiz tim @ImranKhanPTI”
Late Monday night around 11.40 pm, the same group hacked into Bachchan’s account, also tweeting the link of its ‘official’ Instagram page, though unverified, writing “We are waiting for your support.”
Like Bachchan’s page was restored within half-an-hour after the Mumbai Police alerted the cyber unit, Sami’s page too, was restored shortly.
The singer previously held a Pakistani passport and received Indian citizenship in 2015.
The group had previously hacked Twitter accounts of actors Shahid Kapoor and Anupam Kher among others as well.
