Ethical hackers on Sunday claimed to have accessed bank account details of TRAI chief R S Sharma and deposited Rs 1 in his bank account to highlight the potential of Aadhaar number being misused. This came a day after Sharma shared his Aadhaar number publicly on Twitter, challenging anyone to show how mere knowledge of 12-digit UIDAI can be misused to harm him.

Hackers  also revealed that Sharma had used his Aadhaar card for sale of organic goods on July 2.

The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), however, maintained there was no breach to Aadhaar database.
