'Kerala Cyber Warriors' hack Maneka Gandhi's website, demand stray dog-free India

A group named Kerala Cyber Warriors (KCW) on Monday hacked Union Minister Maneka Gandhi's People For Animals (PFA) website, pledging to make India free from stray dogs, reported Indiatimes. The group's action comes a day after 65-year-old Sheeluamma was killed by more than 50 stray dogs in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday.

According to News 18, the group had taken control of the site and blacked it out with a message "Stray Dog Free India."

The 'articles' and  'NGO' pages on the PFA website displayed news reports about Sheeluamma’s death and provided information about the website's hacking, The News Minute reported.

The group is also responsible for hacking a number of websites in Pakistan and Bangladesh, the report said.

There have been a lot of reports about attacks by stray dogs in Kerala.

In 2015, the government had decided to solve the problem by exterminating stray dogs but it had to drop the idea after animal rights activists launched an online campaign, the Indiatimes report said.
