OMG! Our domain name has been hijacked! Someone got access to a fake email account, requested a domain transfer from netsol to "active domain", and changed the domain's DNS data to a spam page. We have already contacted netsol and they have told us they're gonna "study" the case...

Netsol is cool, any domain registered through them can be transfered away easily unless they offer the option to lock it. For instance I was on the phone with Godaddy and put them on conf call with NetSol asking why one of my domains was hijacked and Netsol said they do not verify the transfer because if someone is transfering a domain away that isnt theirs they're breaking their ToS. The only way you can stop the transfer is by checking your spam filled whois registered e-mail account to 'STOP' the transfers rather than approve them.
LoL it was funny to hear godaddy and netsol rep go off on each other ;)
For me, its a different case. I registered my domain with a Tucows reseller, about 3 months ago, and still haven't received a reply concerning the "Login Info" for it yet to change the name servers.
I contacted them by phone, e-mail etc. but they won't reply, its a very bad company in my case, Tucows, although, the domain is registered on my name, e-mail etc. so I recently transfered it and has gona to approval to Tucows. Lets hope they accept it.
I moved over 100 domains to godaddy from netsol and tucows because of their locking system. The price drop was nice, but not the primary reason I moved. Having weathered a few hijacking attempts the netsol system had just become too insecure.
