PANAJI: The All India Football Federation (AIFF) was left embarrassed after its official twitter handle (@IndianFootball) published tweets taking potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The AIFF later claimed its account was hacked and has since been restored. At a time when the Prime Minister was warning cow vigilantes not to indulge in violence, there were two tweets in quick succession at 1.37pm on AIFF's official handle. The first read, "Very (pleasantly) surprised to see Modi speak about what's happening in the country, the violent, vile society that we're a part of." Another tweet followed, "Now that Mr Modi has said that no one can take the law in his hands, he has to ensure the perpetrators don't get away with the crimes."

The tweets were later deleted and the AIFF said they had nothing to do with attempts to embarrass the Prime Minister. "Someone had hacked the account. The tweets have been deleted," said AIFF general secretary Kushal Das.
