by Jeremy

The Centre on Monday told the Supreme Court that it would form a committee to look into the alleged Pegasus snooping matter. The Centre on Monday said the Supreme Court that it would create a committee of experts to look into the suspected Pegasus spying case while denying all allegations as “unsubstantiated” and “uncorroborated”.

In an affidavit filed in the Supreme Court, the Centre said: “To dispel any wrong narrative spread by specific vested interests and with an object of examining the issues raised, the Union of India will constitute a Committee of Experts in the field which will go into all aspects of the problem.

It also said that the charges leveled by the petitioners are “based on conjectures and surmises or other unsubstantiated media reports or incomplete or unfounded material. It is submitted that the same cannot be the basis for invoking the writ jurisdiction of this honorable court. A bench of Chief Justice N V Ramana and justices Suryakant and Aniruddha Bose was hearing a batch of petitions, including those filed by the Editors Guild of India and senior journalists N Ram and Sashi Kumar, seeking an independent probe into the alleged snooping row.
