PERSONAL DETAILS OF TRAI CHIEF LEAKED, PUTS AN OPEN CHALLENGE ON TWITTER

Back in the year 2017, Union Government of India made an unexpected move where they made it compulsory for everyone to link their mobile number to bank account number with their Aadhar. This became a huge debate topic that union government is trying to control Indian nationals by ramming into their personal data. Now in a new lead, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India chairman RS Sharma said that he is setting an open challenge to the Twitter community to prove, how mere knowledge of the 12 digit number could be misused to cause harm. He shared this message not as a regulatory head but as an ordinary citizen of India. His Tweet read;

“My Aadhaar number is 7621 7768 2740 Now I give this challenge to you: Show me one concrete example where you can do any harm to me!”.

Triggering a series of tweets that claimed to disclose his personal details, from PAN to mobile number. The challenge by Sharma had evoked an immediate response on the social media platform, managing to create quite a stir with some users claiming to have dug up his mobile number, photo, residential address, date of birth, even chat threads using the information.
