Khalistan Referendum voting in Australia hit by cyber attack


Australia, Mar 19 (NNI): Khalistan Referendum voting in Brisbane was hit by a massive cyber attack within 30 minutes after the polling commenced.

The voting started at the Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre with
the Sikh holy prayers at sharp 9:00am.

The voting continued smoothly for the first 30 minutes but then the whole voting electronic system crashed as the cyber-attack was launched.

Organisers Sikhs For Justice (SFJ) said the attack was well-planned and well -coordinated. They said that the Indian government agencies were behind the cyber-attack.

They said that this was not the first time that the Sikhs’ Khalistan Referendum voting was attacked. One of the organisers said that attempts were made previously as well but the IT team and security experts of the SFJ were able to restore the system back up.—NNI
