The Supreme Court Set Up Expert Committee Look Into Pegasus Row, Order on Pleas Next Week.
The bench headed by Chief Justice N V Ramana said the order, which was to be pronounced earlier, will now be delivered next week.
We will be able to finalise the members of technical expert team by next week and then pronounce our orders, said the bench.
The observation assumes significance as the Centre had earlier offered to set up an expert panel on its own to look into the grievances of alleged snooping on phones.
The top court on September 13 had reserved its order, saying it only wanted to know whether or not the Centre used the Pegasus spyware through illegal methods to allegedly snoop on citizens
Centre had stoutly refused to file an affidavit citing national security on pleas seeking an independent probe into the snooping row.
The pleas seeking an independent probe are related to reports of alleged snooping by government agencies on eminent citizens, politicians and scribes by using Israeli firm NSO's spyware Pegasus.
Supreme Court on orally observed that it would be setting up a technical expert committee to inquire into the Pegasus snooping matter, and an order will be passed next week on a batch of pleas seeking an independent probe into the issue.
