Vigilance to probe phone tapping, says Virbhadra

india Updated: Mar 02, 2013 13:28 IST

Less than a day after the completion of a probe into the alleged phone tapping during the previous BJP regime in Himachal Pradesh, Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh on Saturday said that the investigation would be handed over to the state vigilance and anti-corruption bureau.

"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.
