New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Monday began its probe into a complaint by Attorney General GE Vahanvati regarding a hoax call he received from a woman imitating Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

A case was registered with the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Delhi Police.
Reports claimed that the A-G had received a call from a woman imitating Sonia Gandhi, but cops declined to elaborate owing to the sensitive nature of the case.

The hoax caller, reports said, called Vahanvati when Gandhi was in New York for a medical check-up.

A newspaper report stated that the caller managed to convincingly sound unhappy over Vahanvati`s handling of crucial cases, including the coal blocks allocation issue.

The hoax caller pretending to be Gandhi told the attorney-general that he should consider "lying low and taking fewer responsibilities", says the report.

The hoax caller suggested she wasn`t happy with Vahanvati`s performance, hinting that he should consider resigning.

"We have received a complaint from the Attorney General and we are conducting preliminary enquiry into it," police officials were quoted as saying.
