Police on Thursday registered two FIRs (First Information Reports) into the hacking of the official Twitter handle of party and its Vice President Rahul Gandhi.

Deependra Pathak, Joint Commissioner of Police said: "The Cyber Cell has lodged two FIRs in the hacking case. We are probing the matter."

"We are also taking help from officials in Twitter in Bengaluru," he added.

The cases were registered under Section 66 of IT Act following complaints from the party leaders.

On Wednesday night, Gandhi's Twitter account was hacked and expletives and abuses were posted on it. The same account was hacked again on Thursday morning.

A few hours later, the party's official Twitter account was found to be hacked as well.
