The personal Twitter account of Prime Minister Narendra Modi was hacked early this morning. Twitter informed that it has taken the necessary steps to secure the account and is now actively investigating the issue.
The incident comes after several Twitter accounts of prominent personalities were hacked in July.
The account has reportedly sent out tweets asking its followers to donate to the PM National Relief Fund through cryptocurrency.
The last tweet from the account was on August 31. The tweet has a quote of PM Modi from his monthly radio programme "Mann Ki Baat". Regular updates from the Prime Minister's speeches and other programmes are tweeted from @narendramodi_in.
Accounts of high-profile users like Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Barack Obama, Jeff Bezos, and others were compromised on July 15.
