Two days after Sheeluamma, a 65-year-old woman, was brutally killed by a pack of 50 stray dogs in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala Cyber Warriors has hacked in to the website of People for Animals, an animal welfare organization chaired by Union Minister Maneka Gandhi.
This is seen as a retaliatory measure against Maneka, a staunch advocate of a ban on killing stray dogs.
The site has since been restored.
In a Facebook post, the Kerala Cyber Warriors also demanded a stray dog free India. They had posted their logo and a message which read thus: “Hacked by team Kerala Cyber Warriors and Stray Dog Free India”.
Kerala has been witnessing a surge in incidents such as the gory death of Sheeluamma, who was mauled by stray dogs last Friday.
"Kerala has been killing stray dogs for more than 60 years. What has it achieved? No other state in the country mercilessly kills stray dogs in this manner,” Maneka, who supports a ban on killing stray dogs, told had The Week in an exclusive chat on Sunday.
