An initial Ministry of Electronics and Information and Technology (Meity) probe concluded that the Instagram accounts of senior Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's children were not compromised, news agency ANI quoted sources as saying.
"Initial investigation shows that (Instagram) accounts of Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's children not compromised", the sources claimed.
On Wednesday, the central government had ordered an investigation into the hacking allegations, asking the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) to investigate the matter following Robert Vadra's warning that he will take the matter to court.
Gandhi had said on Tuesday that the government has hacked her children's social media accounts and is keeping a close watch on their conversations.
She made the statement in response to a question on illegal phone surveillance on political opponents ahead of the Uttar Pradesh (UP) elections. She said, "They are even hacking my children's Instagram accounts, let alone phone tapping. Do they not have any other work?"
