The tweets, which contained offensive language, were deleted immediately. However, the above uploaded tweet is still pinned on top.

Earlier this week, the group had shared liquor baron Mallya’s address and phone number in London in addition to some documents on his investment and other details pertaining to his residency in London. According to the hackers, they have launched a fight against ‘corrupt’ people. They had also tweeted that they’ll release a couple of documents over the next few days and will also release Congress emails on New Year.
