Pegasus scandal: CJI says probe panel to be set up next week

Breaking news information alert.

BREAKING NEWS: CJI CV Ramana said Thursday that an expert technical panel will be set up by next week to probe into the Pegasus snooping scandal, according to a tweet by PTI. He said in open court to advocate CU Singh that some chosen members will not be able to participate due to personal reasons.

The Pegasus scandal has been gathering momentum over the past two months since it broke, after news organisations across the globe alleged that the Israeli spyware has been used to spy on private citizens, government officials, journalists and activists. News organisation The Wire said that 161 Indians were potentially spied on. The Indian government has so far denied all allegations.
