“We are all banging our heads in shame. Ghani Baba @ashrafghani fled with his crooks. He screwed and f***ed everything up. We apologize to everyone for serving the fugitive. May Allah punish the traitor! He legacy will be a stain on our history," the Afghan Embassy wrote in a tweet. The tweet was later deleted.

This comes after the war-torn country’s president fled and conceded the Taliban had won the 20-year-old war.

Hours later, Abdulhaq Azad, Press Secretary to Afghan Embassy in India, wrote on Twitter that the account had been “hacked". “I have lost access to Twitter handle of Afghan Embassy India, a friend sent a screenshot of this tweet, (this tweet is hidden from me.) I have tried to log in but can’t access it. Seems it is hacked."
