The website of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was hacked on Tuesday, followed by taunting messages for the party's chief Imran Khan.

The hackers, who called themselves 'Hunter Gujjar', left a message on the website, saying, "whether or not tabdeeli is witnessed in Pakistan; the website has definitely experienced a tabdeeli," apparently mocking Imran for his oft-quoted slogan of change.

They went on to say, "[Imran Khan] should really let [us] know when the country will actually witness a change."

This isn't the first time the PTI's website has been hacked. The website was defaced in August last year, hours after party's estranged lawmaker Ayesha Gulalai held a presser claiming women affiliated with the party faced constant harassment from within the ranks.

In a message posted on the website, the hackers had said that they didn't support any political party but "will never vote for Imran Khan".
