According to the letter, written and sent by the project director of Sindh Police's Information & Technology department, the FIA has been "requested to please take legal action against the hacker".

"Sindh Police DMC [Digital Media Cell] official Twitter account i.e. @sindhpolicedmc has been hacked and edited with a new name i.e. sindhpolicedmc8 and being operated by an unauthorised anonymous person," the letter reads.

"Sindh Police cannot change anything in this account and also unable to log in, the details of Sindh Police DMC email's conversation with Twitter is enclosed," it adds.
