Kolkata: The perpetrators of yesterday`s
hacking attack on the official website of West Bengal CID has
been traced to Lahore and they had routed it through a US
proxy server, a senior agency official said on Monday.
"The hacking was done by little-known organisation Muslim
Liberation Army yesterday from Lahore and the proxy server was
traced to America," DIG, CID, (SOG), K Jayaraman told
There was no reason to worry as the original home page
had been restored yesterday itself, he added.
Asked if the CID was taking any measure to guard against
hacking in future, Jayaraman said, "The website was designed
by Techno Developers Group, which we have contacted. We are
also consulting NIC which has designed the website of the
Kolkata police to prevent further such mischief."
The hacked page reads: "This institutionalised impunity
with which the killing of civilians by military and police
forces in Jammu and Kashmir continues should be a source of
shame for India which propagates to be a democracy."
Meanwhile, the Muslim Liberation Army has claimed to
have hacked different government, college and university
websites from time to time.
