Since July 18, hundreds of names from a leaked database of phone numbers have been published by a consortium of journalists across the world. The names reflect potential targets of illegal cyber surveillance using Pegasus, an Israel-made spying software. the fact that a Supreme Court staffer and her family were selected as potential targets days after she levelled sexual harassment allegations at Ranjan Gogoi, who was Chief Justice of India at the time. As many as 11 numbers related to her and her family members were spied on by Pegasus – one of the largest cohorts that have emerged in the investigation so far. Clearly, the Supreme Court staffer who accused Justice Gogoi of workplace sexual harassment was a high value target. In this episode of the Editorial our Managing Editor Mr Sujit Nair shares his take on the matter.
