Hoax Caller Imitates Sonia Gandhi

Indian papers are reporting that the attorney general of India, Goolam Vahanvati, recently received a series of calls from someone claiming to be Sonia Gandhi (President of the Congress), urging him to resign. But it wasn't actually Gandhi on the phone. It was a woman imitating her voice.

Usually it's radio stations that are behind this kind of prank. But in this case, a senior member of the Indian congress is suspected to be the mastermind behind it.

A hoax call from a PSU woman officer who convincingly sounded like Sonia Gandhi, an agitated attorney general of India who received that call and was convinced that a not-too-happy Congress president was on the line, an informal CBI inquiry into the matter, and now a formal Delhi Police inquiry into the complaint filed on the hoax call. Home minister Sushil Kumar Shinde confirmed such a hoax call had been made and that the matter was referred to the home ministry. He declined to give further details.
