"The government is going to hand over the probe to the vigilance and anti-corruption bureau," the chief minister told reporters here.

"Strict action would be initiated against those officials who were involved in this act," he added.

The second and final report into the illegal phone tapping, allegedly at the behest of the Prem Kumar Dhumal-led government, Friday said 350 telephone calls were tapped in six months, ahead of the assembly elections.
