My email, my social media accounts were hacked: Hammad Azhar


Former Energy Minister Hammad Azhar claimed on Friday that his Twitter, email and Apple ID accounts were hacked on Thursday evening.

The PTI leader, in a later tweet, said most of his identifying information had been recovered since the incident.

Sharing the photo of an unknown person, the PTI chief said his email display photo had been replaced with the individual’s photo and identified the person as Muhammad Sheryar.

Before Twitter restored the former minister’s account, Azhar had contacted the microblogging website from a computer where his Twitter account was already logged in.

Later, he said that computer experts informed him of how the “hack” took place.

“A phone locator (Fake Tower) was used to log into my phone and access my text messages and data. From there they started sending reset requests to all accounts (emails , Apple, Twitter) We have a fascist government but very afraid of power,” Azhar explained.

“We have a fascist but very scared government in power,” he added.
