The web portal of Lahore district government was allegedly hacked on Tuesday by Indian hackers.

"Pakistani kids keep distance from Indian server. It's payback for hacking Indian sites," a message on the website read.

The attack which came in retaliation to alleged Pakistani hackers targeting Indian websites, was carried out by a hacker group called IND 3MB3R.



The Lahore district website now shows an image of a sadhu followed by an Indian Army insignia.



Indian and Pakistani hackers have been constantly hacking into eachother's websites. Last month, the web portal of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Right to Information (RTI) Commission was allegedly hacked by Indian hackers. The cyber attack came a day after hackers defaced India’s elite National Security Guard’s website and left anti-India messages.
