New Delhi: A BHEL woman employee is suspected to be the hoax caller impersonating Congress president Sonia Gandhi and making a call to the Attorney General GE Vahanvati.
The woman employee has reportedly been identified by the Delhi police during initial investigation and an FIR in the case is expected to be lodged soon.
On September 5, a woman working with a public sector firm was reported to have imitated Congress president Sonia Gandhi`s voice when she made calls to Vahanvati regarding some high-profile cases in the Supreme Court following which he lodged a police complaint.
The woman, said to be a PSU worker, had allegedly imitated Sonia and managed to convincingly sound unhappy while talking to Vahanvati over what she said was his handling of several crucial and high profile cases, including those related to coal allocations.
She was allegedly asked by someone linked to the coal scam to talk to Vahanvati apparently to influence his opinion on the scam before Supreme Court.
Initially the caller posed herself as Sonia Gandhi and later made claims that she was calling from her back office of the Congress president, the sources said.
A discreet probe was carried out by central security agencies after which the AG informed the government which advised him to register a complaint with the Economic Offences Wing of Delhi Police.
