The Twitter account of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s personal website was hacked as cryptic tweets were posted early on Thursday.

Confirming the hacking of PM Modi’s personal website, Twitter said it was aware of the activity and has taken steps to secure the compromised account. "We are actively investigating the situation. At this time, we are not aware of additional accounts being impacted," a Twitter spokesperson told news agency Reuters.

In a series of tweets, the messages posted on Twitter account of PM Modi’s personal website, which goes by the handle narendramodi_in, read: "I appeal to you all to donate generously to PM National Relief Fund for Covid-19, Now India begin with crypto currency, Kindly Donate eth to 0xae073DB1e5752faFF169B1ede7E8E94bF7f80Be6."

Yes this account is hacked by John Wick (hckindia@tutanota.com), We have not hacked Paytm Mall
