The technical committee appointed by the Supreme Court to investigate the Pegasus spyware issue has sought information from people who suspect their phones were targeted. In a public notice, the committee has asked such people to contact them by January 7.

The committee has also said that it was ready to examine the phones, reported by Ndtv.

According to reports by news portal The Wire, more than 142 people in India were potential targets of the Israeli spyware. Forensic analysis of some of the cellphones by the Security Lab of Amnesty International confirmed a security breach, the reports said.

The alleged list included Congress's Rahul Gandhi, poll strategist Prashant Kishor, two serving Union Ministers, an ex-Election Commissioner, two registrars of the Supreme Court, an old number of a former judge, a close aide of a former Attorney General and 40 journalists.
