A spokesperson for Mumbai Police told PTI that they have informed the cyber unit and the matter is being investigated.
The cover photo of Bachchan’s account, which was subsequently deleted, showed the promo picture of the group with an eagle in flight.
“This is an important call to the whole world! We do condemn the irrespective behaviors of Iceland republic towards Turkish footballers. We speak softly but carry a big stick and inform you about the big Cyber attack here. As Ayyildiz Tim Turkish Cyber Army,” read the first tweet after the cyber attack, which occurred around 11.40 pm on Monday.
