    India’s digital warriors have crippled 30 Pakistan government websites in virtual surgical strikes as protest against the neighbouring country’s announcement of the death penalty to former Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav.

    A Pakistani military court this month ordered the punishment for Jadhav, after he was accused of espionage and sabotage activities in Karachi and Balochistan. “All the hacking in Pakistan was part of our operation ‘Justice for Kulbhushan Jadhav’,” one of the hackers told Mail Today.

    Indian and Pakistani hackers also fought pitched battles in cyber space after last September’s terrorist attack on a military camp in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri sector.

    A message on a hacked Pakistani website read, “Charges against Kulbhushan Jadhav are fictitious, fake and farcical. There is no evidence of wrong doing by him. This is an act of “premeditated murder’. Earlier it was Sarabjeet, now it’s Jadhav.”

    Responsibility of hitting the websites was taken by “lulzsec India”, comprising 11 hackers. Experts say many nations are deploying cyber warriors to attack vital organisations in enemy countries. Pakistan, China, Iran and North Korea have deployed hackers by granting them immunity from consequences.

    Another hackers’ group, Telangana Cyber Warrior, claims it has infected the network of a government hospital in Karachi. “We have their entire computer network under our control. We can modify patients’ records and monitor their health condition,” said a member of the group.

    The Kerala Cyber Warriors hacked the website of Pakistan Academy for Rural Development. The website’s main page is warped in a way that it displays a message demanding “justice for Kulbhushan Jadhav Ji”.

    The message reads that the “Indian spy”, in custody of Pakistani authorities, “lives for India” and all the cases filed against him are completely fake. Observers say Pakistani hackers will try to respond in kind and attempt to hack prominent and sensitive Indian websites. They have in the past carried out mass defacement and are focused on targeting government portals.

    State police websites were defaced by Pakistani hackers where they posted anti-India comments with an image of the Pakistan flag. Experts say the intelligencegathering process has intensified as hackers are not only defacing the sites but are silently spying into critical networks.

    Kulbhushan Jadhav was arrested reportedly from Balochistan after he entered Pakistan from Iran. He was accused by Pakistan of being a “RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) agent” and planning “subversive activities” in the country. The Indian government, on the other hand, believed that he was picked up from Iran. India has acknowledged Jadhav as a retired Indian Navy officer, but denied that he was in any way connected to the government.

    The websites of Delhi University and IIT Delhi were hacked allegedly by a Pakistani hackers group on Tuesday afternoon. The hackers smeared the websites with posters of the alleged the “brutalities” by the ‘Indian forces’ in Kashmir.

    ‘Pakistan Haxors CREW – PHC’, the group which claimed responsibility for hacking into the two websites, posted a screenshot on their Facebook page, claiming they had hacked several websites, including those of Aligarh Muslim University and IIT-BHU in Varanasi.

    Though the Delhi Police and officials of the two institutions said they were unaware of the websites being hacked, many users said they came across “Pakistani propaganda” material when they tried accessing the websites.

    Those using Android phones continued experiencing a hacked IIT-Delhi website till 6 pm on Tuesday. The AMU website was hacked across platforms. The Delhi University website, however, returned to normal within a matter of minutes, said users.

    The poster by hackers’ group posted on top of the IIT Delhi website’s main page read: “Greetings Government of India and the people of India.” It talked about alleged “killing and rape of Kashmiri people by the Indian soldiers”.

    “Take your murderers and rapists back home,” the post said. The hackers also shared two videos of alleged police brutality in Kashmir.

    “Just here to deliver my message to the government and the people of India…Security Is Just An Illusion. Pakistan Zindabad,” the post read.
