NEW DELHI: A software engineer was detained for allegedly hacking into the database of his prior firm and deleting discerning data so as to receive his job back that he lost through the lockdown, authorities said on Friday.
According to a complaint lodged by the CEO of this private business, police found a probe into the issue and monitored the IP address, deputy commissioner of police (northwest) Vijayanta Arya said.
They detained Vikesh Sharma, a resident of Old Maujpur, on Thursday.
Sharma, who’s performed M.Sc (IT), advised authorities he was able to act as a senior applications engineer in the organization and was fired through the lockdown due to debate over wages.
To induce fiscal difficulty to the business, he deleted information of several patients so the organisation will be made to employ back him to rectify the matter, the DCP said.
The accused stated that he deleted 18,000 data admissions of individuals, charging information of approximately three lakh patients and left about 22,000 bogus entries, Arya said.
