But according to the plaintiffs, where the Supreme Court has constituted a committee, why should there be a parallel inquiry? On October 26, the expert committee formed the apex court for an impartial inquiry into the Pegasus case. The committee will consist of a retired Supreme Court judge and two cyber experts. The apex court also appointed a three-member technology expert to investigate whether Pegasus was used to intercept the phone.

A lawsuit has been filed in the Supreme Court over phone spying through Israeli software Pegasus. The commission formed the West Bengal government in the Pegasus case. They also started working.
