Officials further claimed that messages, which read, ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ and ‘We are team Pak cyber attacker’, were posted on the website.

Authorities later took charge and left a message for their visitors, stating, “We’ll be back soon! Sorry for the inconvenience but we’re performing some maintenance at the moment.”
