India bought Pegasus from Israel, $2 billion deal was done during PM Modi's visit - NYT report

New Delhi: Controversy has started once again regarding the spying software Pegasus. Now in a new report on this, surprising claims have been made. The report said that the Indian government had bought Pegasus spyware along with missile systems from Israel in 2017 in a huge deal. The deal was worth $2 billion. In this regard, The New York Times published a report on Friday, in which it has been claimed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had also purchased this spyware and tested it.

Giving information in the report, it has been told how Pegasus has been used globally. It said that Pegasus was sold to Poland, Hungary and India as well as other countries in the Israeli Defense Ministry deal license. It mentions about PM Narendra Modi's visit to Israel in the year 2017 that both the countries had agreed on a $2 billion arms and intelligence gear package deal. This included Pegasus and missile systems. Referring to PM Modi's historic visit to Israel in July 2017, the report said that the visit took place when "India had made a policy", which spoke of "commitment to Palestine" and "for Israel". Relations with him were cold."

The report noted that Modi's visit, though notably cordial, was that he and PM Benjamin Netanyahu went to a beach in Israel and relations between them seemed to be warm. But there was a reason behind its warmth. Their countries had agreed to the sale of a package of sensitive weapons and espionage equipment worth about $2 billion. The main focus of this deal was Pegasus and a missile system. Let us tell you that till now neither the Indian government has accepted that it has bought Pegasus software from Israel nor has the Israeli government ever said that it has sold this spying system to India.
