Pegasus Scandal: Supreme Court To Hear Petitions Demanding Probe Into Snooping Row On Thursday


Pegasus Row: The petitions were filed by journalist N Ram, CPM’s John Brittas and lawyer ML Sharma

New Delhi:

A two-judge bench of the Supreme Court on Thursday will hear a clutch of petitions seeking a special investigation into the Pegasus scandal involving allegations that opposition politicians, journalists and others were targets of Israeli spyware.

The petitions, filed by journalist N Ram, CPM leader John Brittas and advocate ML Sharma, ask the top court to direct the government to disclose whether it has obtained a licence for the spyware or used it – directly or indirectly – to conduct surveillance of any kind.

The forensic analysis of several mobile phones, according to the petitioners, belonging to people listed as potential targets by the Security Lab of Amnesty International have confirmed security breaches.
