- The infamous Pegasus spy relationship
- Cell phones of 10 prime ministers and 3 presidents were blocked
In India, the mobile phone conversations of 40 people, including opposition leaders and journalists, were reportedly tapped by Pegasus, a software company developed by the Israeli NSO. This issue has caused a great deal of controversy around the world, including in India.
Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi, election planning class organizer Prashant Kishore and Union minister Ashwini Vaishnav were reportedly tapped on their mobile phones.
In this context, Pegasus software spying has shocked not only India but many world leaders. Many, including Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, French President Emmanuel Macron and the king of a country, have reportedly spied on Pegasus software.
Fifteen people are said to have been spied on, including French President Emmanuel Macron and French ministers. The French government has ordered a special inquiry into the matter.
Following this, Pegasus software reportedly spied on Iraqi President Berham Saleh and South African President Cyril Ramphosa. However, the details of how their cell phones were victimized are not known. World leaders are said to have spied on public cell phone numbers, newspapers and government press releases.
