The request for a special investigation into the Pegasus scandal, involving allegations that opposition politicians, journalists and others were targets of Israeli spyware, may be taken up next week, Chief Justice of India NV Ramana said today.
Senior journalists N Ram and Sashi Kumar had sought a Special Investigation Team (SIT) headed by a sitting of former judge into the snooping allegations. Their lawyer Kapil Sibal requested the Chief Justice to list the petition.
