Supreme Court order on Wednesday on Pegasus spyware case:

The Supreme Court will tomorrow (October 27) promulgate its judgment on the petitions that have sought an independent court-monitored investigation into the alleged Pegasus spyware case.

The Supreme court had last month stated that it would constitute a panel of experts to probe the allegations of Pegasus spyware being used to carry out unauthorized surveillance by government agencies. The court had stated that the order on the constitution of the committee could be issued soon. The Centre had earlier asked the Apex court to allow it to set up a panel to investigate the allegations of hacking of phones of several prominent people using the spyware developed by Israeli firm NSO Group.

The Central govt had earlier refuted all allegations of carrying out unlawful surveillance on Indian citizens. It had in an affidavit filed in August stated that "to dispel any wrong narrative spread by certain vested interests and with an object of examining the issues raised”, it is ready to form “a Committee of Experts in the field which will go into all aspects of the issue”.

Earlier on Sept 13, a 3-judge bench of the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice of India NV Ramana had reserved its order on the batch of pleas seeking a court-monitored probe in the matter. The Centre had earlier stated that the issue could not be discussed in detail in public as it entails national security concerns.
