New Delhi: The official website of the Pakistan High Commission in India was non-functional on Wednesday after alleged hackers blackened its home page. It has now been restored.
“Yes, the website was hacked,” Manzoor Memon, the minister (press minister) at the mission said.
“A black screen appeared on the home page of the website with the name ‘Sh4dow X’ written at the bottom,” he said.
“The website has been put down by some Indians,” he alleged.
Asked if he had made a complaint to police, Memon denied it.
The website ‘pakhcnewdelhi.org.pk’ is the official website on which the office of the Pakistan High Commission provides press releases and provides online forms for visa applications.
“It was a user-friendly platform and provided people to people contact,” said Memon, adding the website will again be functional soon.
