Prayagraj : Cyber fraudsters tried to buy gifts using an email in the name of the first woman Vice-Chancellor of Allahabad University (AU) .

The incident happened days after Sangeeta Srivastava took over as the new head of the varsity, reports say.

The Allahabad University's proctor filed a police complaint on behalf of the Vice-Chancellor.

An email in the name of Sangeeta Srivastava was reportedly sent to the official account of AU registrar.

AU registrar was asked to buy some gifts from an e-commerce site on behalf of the VC on urgent basis.

The message said the VC was in a meeting at the time and did not have her bank cards to purchase gifts herself.

Upon receiving the email, AU registrar informed the Vice-Chancellor who asked him to lodge an FIR in this connection.

SHO Colonelganj, Awan Kumar Dixit, said an FIR would be lodged under the IT Act and other relevant sections of IPC.

Further investigations by the Cyber Cell revealed that several others had received the same message.
