Who was spied on by Pegasus? Inquiry committee submits report to Supreme Court

New Delhi: The Technical Committee constituted in the case of alleged spying through Pegasus spyware has submitted its interim report to the Supreme Court. A bench headed by Chief Justice (CJI) N V Ramana will study the pending petitions and reports in the case on February 23. On October 27, 2021, the apex court had constituted a three-member committee in the matter, in which Dr Naveen Kumar Chaudhary, Dean of Forensic Sciences, Gandhinagar University, Dr Prabhakaran P, Professor of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Kerala and Dr Ashwin Anil Gumaste of IT Bombay have been made members.  

Former Supreme Court judge Justice RV Raveendran has been appointed to oversee the committee. It also includes two experts, former IPS Alok Jashi and Dr Sandeep Oberoi. A bench of CJI N V Ramana, Justice Surya Kant and Justice Hima Kohli listed 12 PILs for hearing on February 23. These include the 'Editors Guild of India', petitions by journalists N Ram and Shashi Kumar. During this time, the report that was asked to be filed by the Supreme Court-appointed panel may also be reviewed.

Let us know that there are 12 petitions filed in the Supreme Court for investigation in this case. The Pegasus spyware was created by the Israeli company NSO. The Centre has consistently denied the allegations of espionage. The central government says that the matter is related to national security, so it does not want to make the entire details public. The Centre had said that it should be given the right to form a committee. However, the top court had said that it would be against the judicial system.
