He contacted to a website claiming that he is able to access all the private data on the Narendra Modi app. Not only that, he even claims that he can make any user to follow any other user on the platform. He says, “What I am claiming is just a summary of all the security loopholes otherwise many other security things are ignored.
When the website he communicated first asked for the evidence to believe on his claim, Javed showed few screenshots showing the personal data of Jitendra Singh, Minister of State for the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region, Prime Minister Office and Smriti Irani, Minister of Textile. Below are the screenshots on which the sensitive information are redacted.
