The Supreme Court will resume hearing today a batch of petitions seeking various prayers including a court-monitored probe, a judicial inquiry and directions to the government to reveal details about whether it had used the Pegasus software to spy on citizens.

The Bench led by Chief Justice of India NV Ramana had earlier granted time to the Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to file a reply. However, no official notice was issued to the Central Government.

The Supreme Court had also observed that while the allegations in news reports regarding the Pegasus controversy are serious in nature, if true, no efforts seem to have been made by the affected persons to file criminal complaints with the police before approaching the top court.
