Pegasus Scandal: We Have Nothing To Hide, Centre Tells Supreme Court

Pegasus spyware was allegedly used to snoop on journalists, politicians and activists

New Delhi:

The government today said it has “nothing to hide from the court” while the Supreme Court was hearing petitions seeking a thorough investigation into the Pegasus spyware scandal. The court, issuing notice to the centre, said the government should reply on allegations that the Israeli spyware was used on individual phones, adding it will decide on forming a committee to investigate the allegations only after getting the centre’s response.

“We do not want national security to be compromised, but the phones of individuals were attacked as per their claims. Only a competent authority can respond on that,” Justice Surya Kant said.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the centre, argued against putting out facts of the Pegasus case in the public domain citing national security.
