Panaji: Goa Governor Mridula Sinha`s website has been hacked by unknown people, the police said Saturday.
According to a complaint registered by Shilpa Shinde, secretary to the governor, some hackers gained control of the website and deleted photographs posted on it.
According to police, a First Information Report has been registered under Section 66 of the Information Technology and other sections of the Indian Penal Code. Police, however, have not been able to track the identity of the hackers yet.
On Saturday, a note on the website www.rajbhavangoa.org read: "Our website is currently undergoing maintenance. Work in progress."
This is not the first time that a Goa government website has been hacked. The state government portals were hacked by a Pakistani cyber expert in July 2013 when 13 websites maintained by state government departments were defaced.
Police had then said that the websites were hacked by a Pakistan-based cyber group called H4x0r HuSsy.
