Hacked Indian university site serving malware

We have seen many cases wherein US University websites (.EDU) are hacked and made to serve malware and other junk (info here, here)! Now, gang behind those hacking incidents has targeted few Indian University websites too. One "fine" example is www(dot)mlncollegeynr(dot)ac(dot)in, which is the website of Mukand Lal National College, Yamunanagar, Haryana, India. Here's a screenshot of Google search results for this site:

Those entire dubious webpages link to various other rogue sites such as fake search engines, rogue antispyware pushers, Zlob malware installers etc. Here's one such rogue site, reached from links present in hacked college site:

It seems that, Klik gang (info here (pdf)) is responsible for this. But, sadly this seems to be the second time the college’s site is being hacked. First one happened around April 2007, as evident from this site:

Concerned college authorities have informed by email, however haven't heard anything from them yet. Let's hope they will clean up the mess!
