The Pegasus espionage case should be led by a sitting or retired Supreme Court judge, a request has been made to the country’s top court. An application has been filed in the Supreme Court on behalf of senior journalists N Ram and Shashi Kumar, saying that the alleged government agencies have spied on well-known journalists, politicians etc. through the Israeli spyware Pegasus. He said that there is a need for an independent inquiry into the matter. The petition is likely to come up for hearing in the coming days.

Who bought the spyware, tell the government
It has been said in the petition that if there has been illegal phone hacking and Pegasus spyware has been used for this, then it is in a way an attempt to suppress freedom of expression and dissent in India. The petition said that the central government should be directed to disclose whether any government agency has taken a license to use Pegasus spyware. In any way, whether the government agency has a license for Pegasus spyware for surveillance, it should be told.

It has been said in the petition that media across the world have reported that more than 142 people in India, including journalists, lawyers, government ministers, leaders of opposition parties, civil society activists and people holding constitutional posts, have been targeted. Designed and monitored using Pegasus software.

Attack on the right to life and privacy

The petitioner has said in his application that military level surveillance has been done through Pegasus and this cannot be acceptable. People’s right to life includes the right to privacy. The Constitution has given freedom of expression, as well as freedom of life and liberty. Through this Pegasus spyware, journalists, social workers, ministers and people holding constitutional posts were targeted and their phones were hacked.

If seen, this is a serious interference in their fundamental right. The very foundation of people’s right to life has been threatened and all this is terrifying. The petitioner said that hacking of the phone in this way is an offense under Section 66, 66B, 66E, 66F of the IT Act. Such an attack is cyber terrorism and has serious implications for its multi-dimensional political and security implications.
