Some 8 hours ago, @TheVijayMallya tweeted that his account has been hacked and asked the followers to ignore the messages that were to follow. Soon enough, the handle tweeted:
We haven’t heard from Vijay Mallya’s office yet. This is a developing story and we’ll update it as we get new information.
Earlier this month, the same group said it had hacked Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi’s e-mail and Twitter account.
