  • Omar Abdullah shared a press release to notify that the Twitter account of Jammu and Kashmir's Governor Satya Pal Malik was hacked.
  • He further added how the hacker only followed the neighbour Prime Minister and then 'quietly left' Malik's account access 'untouched.' 

Omar Abdullah seems to be impressed with the 'kind hearted hacker' who broke into Jammu and Kashmir Governor's Twitter account.  

Having confronted with a rather jovial hacker, the National Conference leader in a tweet shared that Jammu and Kashmir's Governor Satya Pal Malik's twitter account was hacked, however, the 'very kind hacker' only used the access to follow Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. 

He further added how the hacker only followed the neighbour Prime Minister and then 'quietly left' Malik's account access 'untouched.' 

The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir added that Raj Bhavan upon acknowledgement was immediately able to undo the activity. This hacking tale further got amusing after Omar Abdullah humorously said that he wishes to have such a hacker, in case his account gets hacked again.

Along with the tweet, he shared a press release affirming the hacking by some 'mischievous elements' and that the matter has been taken to the Jammu and Kashmir Police to take necessary action. 

Politics aside, more often than not, the Abdullah scion has unleashed his sense of humour through twitter, only recently responded to the Indian Army's stunning revelation that its mountaineering expedition has sited mysterious footprints of the 'Yeti' - or abominable snowman.

Leveraging the Army's tweet, the National Conference chief has taken a sarcastic jibe at the BJP, saying that the party is probably trying to work out how exactly to work the 'Yeti' footprint finding into its election campaign.

The Yeti is also known in popular culture as 'The Abominable Snowman', owing to descriptions and unverified first person accounts of its large size and terrifying nature. It is elusive to the point of being mythical and is frequently cited in Nepalese and Tibetan folklore. It is usually described as being furry and ape-like, a snow counterpart to 'Big Foot' a similar mythical creature that is said to inhabit North America.
