The social media account of the Minister of State for HRD was hacked and had been sending vague tweets tagging a Pakistani writer

Indian minister Shashi Tharoor's Twitter account had been under attack by unknown hackers.

Tharoor, who is also very popular on the micro-blogging site, tweeted to a certain Mehr Tarar stating, mehr”

A much confused Mehr, who's profile states that she is writer from Pakistan, replied quickly.

It didn't take very long for the Indian political personality to identify the security lapse and put out and official apology:

Mehr, too, replied asking Twitter India to look into the matter, and terming the incident as “very sick”.
