This is not the first leak ‘Games of Thrones’ has suffered over the years; the most recent hack saw 1.5TB of HBO data stolen, including episodes of ‘Ballers’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ and scripts of the fantasy hit.
The four arrested, however, are only being held under suspicion for the leak of episode 4 of season 7, ‘The Spoils of War’. Charged with criminal breach of trust and computer related offences, they will be detained until 21 August, Deputy Commissioner of Police Akbar Pathan said.
