Investigations are now being carried out to check if the link has been deliberately tampered with or not.

According to the Times Now report, the registrar-in-charge and the cooperation commissioner Satish Soni had drafted two letters on January 7 that carried the URL of the loan waiver scheme. Soni emailed a copy of the link to the Agriculture Commissioner on the same day, following which the Agriculture Commissioner ordered officials working in the technical division to take action, Times Now reported.

According to the report, Soni is "believed to have been suspended in wake of the incident".
