Persons outraged by the intrusion of Pegasus into their lives developed cold feet!
Supreme Court’s Pegasus probe panel on Thursday said that only two persons have submitted mobile phones in the past month and decided to extend the submission date up to February 8. In an advertisement, the panel said that persons can sit along with the technical committee while copying the phone. This is the second advertisement by the apex court-appointed panel headed by Justice R V Raveendran. The first advertisement appeared in newspapers on January 2.
“In response to it, only two persons have produced their mobile instruments for taking digital images. Therefore, the Technical Committee once again requests those who have reasonable cause to believe their mobile instrument is infected with Pegasus spyware to come forward and contact the Technical Committee with reasons as to why they believe that their mobile instrument may have been infected with Pegasus malware, on or before February 8, 2022, by an email to email@example.com,” said the advertisement.
“The Pioneer” newspaper’s journalist J Gopikrishnan had already submitted mobile phone to the panel on January 12. Another person who submitted the phone to the panel is Rupesh Kumar Singh, a tribal activist from Jharkhand. He was also a petitioner to the apex court seeking a probe in the Pegasus controversy. Rupesh Kumar and his wife Ipsa Shatakshi’s names appeared as targets of phone tapping using Pegasus spyware.
“When an instrument is produced, a digital image will be taken in the presence of the person producing the instrument and immediately thereafter, the instrument will be returned to the person producing it. A digital image copy will also be furnished to the person producing the mobile instrument,” said the panel. The book Who painted my lust Red? by Sree Iyer explains the process in some detail.
Justice Raveendran headed Pegasus probe panel consists of advisors such as the former RAW Chief Alok Joshi and technocrat Dr. Sundeep Oberoi. The Technical Committee consists of Professors Naveen Kumar Chaudhary, Prabakaran, and Ashwin Gumaste. The Technical Committee has opened an office at the IIT Delhi campus for receiving mobile phones and digital copying
