Bhubaneswar: Former Olympian from Odisha, Lazarus Barla, is the latest victim of cybercrime. His Facebook account was hacked last night.
“My Facebook account has been hacked…… so please do not entertain anything (sic),” he wrote on his timeline.
One of his friends on Facebook commented saying that someone had asked him for Rs 10,000 from this account and given a number to transfer the amount.
A hockey sensation, Lazarus was adjudged the best defender at the 2000 Sydney Olympics for his stellar performance in tandem with teammate Dilip Tirkey.
