Mumbai Police on Tuesday said that they have informed Maharashtra Cyber about Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan's Twitter handle being hacked allegedly by 'pro-Pakistan' Turkish hacker group, Ayyildiz Tim.
The Twitter account of senior Bachchan was hacked late on Monday night.
The hackers pinned a tweet saying, "This is an important call to the whole world! We do condemn the irrespective behaviors of Iceland republic towards Turkish footballers. We speak softly but carry a big stick and inform you about the big Cyber attack here. As Ayyildiz Tim Turkish Cyber Armny +++"
The hackers posted photographs of the Pakistan and Turkish flags with a tweet saying, "The Indian State, who mercilessly attacks the Muslims fasting in the month of Ramadan, is attacking the Ummah Muhammad in this age! Indian Muslims are entrusted to us by Abdulhamid."
However, within an hour, the tweets from his account were deleted and the display picture and cover photo were removed. The account also showed his original bio.
