Supreme Court forms Pegasus snoop probe panel

Allegations that Israeli-made Pegasus software was used to snoop on journalists, activists and politicians in India are about the violation of fundamental rights and “could have a chilling effect,” the Supreme Court said today, setting up an inquiry headed by a retired judge.

A “vague denial from the government is not sufficient,” the Supreme Court said sharply, asserting that the government could not give any clarity despite being given “ample opportunity” to do so. There had been no specific denial by the Centre, it said.
