The hacker group, which goes by the name Legion, has struck again. And this time they have entrepreneur Vijay Mallya’s Twitter account in their palms. If you remember, this is the same hacker group that took down Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, and INC party’s Twitter account with a hack, few weeks ago.

Roughly eight hours ago, Vijay Mallya posted a tweet on his account prompting that his account had been hacked and that he was being blackmailed by the hackers. He also recognised the hackers as Legion, and said that his email accounts had been hacked as well. Also Read - World Emoji Day 2021: Twitter reveals 10 most used emojis in 2021 in India
And now, a few hours ago, the hackers began tweeting a series of posts claiming that they have details of Mallya’s assets at several banks, and passwords of various accounts. They even shared many pictures with documents that allegedly revealed all of Mallya’s emails and the passwords associated with those accounts.
The hacker group also shared links to bank accounts, assets, passports, offshore investments. They have now promised to reveal more details about Mallya and they tweeted, “We shall bring you more about this fraudster and conman over the course of the next few weeks. Slowly watch this bitch die as we expose him!”
On top of the hack, the group also tweeted out seeking support from people, saying that their hack will aid in bringing “these criminals to justice.” They have claimed that over a course of a few days, they will be revealing more details about Mallya. Also, they recently responded to Mallya’s earlier tweet that said that the hacker group was blackmailing them. They said the bit about being blackmailed was an assumption and fake.
They also shared, what they claims is Mallya’s personal mobile number and two of his addresses.
About an hour ago, Legion also shared Mallya’s UK Resident permit, questioning how he received an indefinite residency permit at the UK.
Vijay Mallya owes more than Rs 9,000 crore to lenders like SBI, PNB, IDBI Bank, BoB, Allahabad Bank, Federal Bank and Axis Bank, among others. Mallya left the country on March 3 2016, and is currently said to be in Britain. Earlier this year, his passport was revoked by the Indian government.
