Pegasus: We have nothing to hide. These are the issues of national security," says Solicitor General for Centre

Pleas for court-monitored probe into Pegasus issue: "We have nothing to hide. These are the issues of national security," says Solicitor General Tushar Mehta for Centre.

SG Mehta says - These software are purchased by every country and the petitioners want it to be divulged if the software has not been used. If we divulge this then the terrorists can take preventive steps. These are national security issues and we cannot hide anything from court.

SG Tushar Mehta says - This has to be before a committee and cannot be a subject to public debate. Some web portals are weaving narratives that some software is used.

SG says - We can divulge this to a committee of experts & it'll be a neutral body. Would you as a constitutional court expect such issues to be divulged before court & put up for public debate? Committee will place its report before court. But how can we sensationalise the issue.

Supreme Court tells Centre - We as a Court and you as the SG and all lawyers as officers of the court, none of us would like to compromise with the security of the nation.

SC says - For the defence of the nation, we're not going to disclose anything. Some persons of eminence are alleging snooping of phones, now this can also be done but only with permission of the competent authority. What's the problem if authority files an affidavit before us?

SG says-We're all in our own right responsible citizens. Govt doesn't mind saying it before an expert group. Suppose a terror org uses technology to communicate with sleeper cells&we say we're not using Pegasus, they'll modulate apparatus in a way that it's not Pegasus compatible
