Why are those who accused Pegasus of espionage not cooperating in SC investigation?

New Delhi: Those who attacked the central government by naming the 'Pegasus' spyware are no longer cooperating with the Supreme Court's investigation on the same matter. In fact, the top court had formed a committee to look into the allegations of the use of Pegasus, but so far only two mobile phones have been deposited with the committee, while many leaders and journalists have made allegations through social media about their own spying. Now the top court on Thursday (February 3, 2022) has extended its deadline to February 8.

Those who suspect that their mobile phones have been targeted through Pegasus have been asked to appear before the inquiry committee and submit their mobile phones. However, the leaders and journalists who have accused them of cooperating in the investigation are not ready. The inquiry committee will take digital images of these devices and examine them. Earlier, on January 2 this year, a notice was issued asking such people to come forward. They had to appear before the technical committee and tell these people why they feel that their phones have been spied on. At the same time, he was also to be asked whether he would allow the top court's committee to check his device. 

The three-member committee had said that a request would also be made to submit the device if required. Now the new notice states that a 'digital image' of the device will be taken. The whole process will be done in front of the person whose mobile phone it will be. At the same time, that mobile phone will be given back to him immediately. After this, that 'digital image copy' will be checked. On November 30, 2021, the committee had also asked to show mobile phones for technical verification. Navin Kumar Chaudhary is also a member of the committee, who is the Dean of the National Forensic Sciences University, Gandhinagar, Gujarat. Apart from him, Dr Prabhakaran P, professor at The Smriti Vishwa Vidyapeetha in Kerala and Dr Ashvin Anil Gumashte, 'Institute Chair Associate Professor' of IIT Bombay are also its members.

The Congress and its supporters had even claimed that not only the politicians, journalists and social activists but also the mobile phones of several Union ministers were being spied on through 'Pegasus'. On October 27, a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice (CJI) N V Ramana had announced the setting up of the committee under the supervision of Justice Raveendran. The committee was tasked with examining the mobile phones to see if 'Pegasus' was used to read the chats, collect information and collect data.
