MUMBAI: Indiantelevision got in touch with Rajdeep Sardesai for clarifications regarding his exit from online social networking site Twitter. The popular news anchor explained, "There are multiple reasons behind doing this. I think my account has been hacked. Why will I put such negative and harsh comments about myself on social media? For now, I am on a Twitter detox mode. Let my company decide if I should operate through our official handle or wait for some time for further clarifications. I have already sent a complaint to Twitter and have requested it to look at this".

On Saturday afternoon at around 3:19 pm Sardesai alleged that his Twitter account had been hacked by someone. He tweeted, "How low will some people now stoop to? Hack my account? Put out false messages? When will this end? Time to disable account. Enough is enough".

The veteran journalist has often complained that he and his wife Sagarika Ghosh are constantly harassed by Twitter trolls, whenever they post their opinions against any political party or the government.
