The petitioners had asked the court to order the central government to give the information of the alleged unauthorized surveillance that was possible because of the Pegasus software.

The petitioners include SC advocate ML Sharma, ex-union minister Yashwant Sinha, CPM MP John Brittas, the Editor’s Guild of India and independent journalists.

The petitioners also demanded that the government should declare all the information of how the spyware got the license, whether it was used directly or indirectly and the people who were targeted.

On the other hand, the Central government have refused to say whether Pegasus spyware was used or not. Due to national security issues, they said to the court that they cannot file a detailed affidavit.

However, they offered to form an independent committee that will investigate the entire case under SC’s supervision.
