According to Scroll, a group of hackers had claimed to have accessed a section of the Rajya Sabha website that only members of the Upper House and administrators of the website are supposed to have entry to.




Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman responded on Twitter. "Issue with the MoD website ( http://mod.nic.in  ) has been taken note of. Appropriate action has been initiated," read her tweet.

The website is managed by the National Informatics Centre (NIC).
