Hyderabad: Police have registered a case after an unidentified person hacked the Facebook account of Hyderabad based International table tennis player Naina Jaiswal.

The young sensation after noticing that she could not access her account approached the Cybercrime wing of Hyderabad police and lodged a formal complaint.

Police immediately swung into action and registered a case. Police also wrote to Facebook for technical details including the IP address of the user who was accessing Jaiswal’s Facebook account.

The unidentified hacker had taken complete control of her Facebook account and had been posting updates including videos and images every hour since February 24.

ACP Cybercrime Hyderabad KVM Prasad told reporters that a case has already been registered and Facebook was also alerted. “We are awaiting information from Facebook. Based on the information, we will be able to identify the hacker,” he said.

Naina Jaiswal, who has over two lakh followers on Facebook is a famous table tennis player who won multiple titles in both national and international championships. She was enrolled for a PhD programme at the age of 17. She is also known for her inspiring speeches at several programs in educational institutions.

Talking to media persons, Naina said she was using the account for official purpose, but the hacker is regularly posting irrelevant information on it.

“I am scared that the hacker would post any vulgar, abusive or other videos inciting violence. I have been living under extreme fear,” she said.

She also appealed people to be wary about the information being shared from her Facebook page. “Once the issue is resolved and things are in control, I will get in touch with you again,” she added.
