“After days of delay in the Pegasus snooping case, the case seems to be moving ahead. The Supreme Court is likely to set up a technical committee to probe the allegations of snooping of journalists, activists etc., using the Pegasus spyware. The Chief Justice of India NV Ramana on Thursday said that the Court will pass the orders in the case next week. The CJI told this orally to Senior Advocate Chander Uday Singh, who is appearing in one of the Pegasus petitions, while the latter was making a mention in another matter. The CJI said that the Court wanted to pass orders this week. but it was deferred as some members of the technical committee the Court had in mind expressed personal difficulties to be part of it. The CJI said that the Court will finalize the members of the technical committee soon and will pass orders next week. Singh said that he will inform to Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal, who is the lead counsel for the petitioners in the case.
