Government Rejects Rahul Gandhi's Call For Pegasus Court Inquiry

Pegasus spyware controversy: Rahul Gandhi has alleged that his own phone was tapped.

New Delhi:

Rahul Gandhi’s demand for a court-monitored inquiry into snooping allegations linked to the Pegasus spyware reports was rejected today by the government. The Congress MP has alleged that his own phone was tapped.

“We have clarified everything in the spyware case. There is no issue for any probe. Those who are making allegations are political failures and they have no other issue,” Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Kumar told NDTV.

Rahul Gandhi accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah of using the Pegasus spyware against India and its institutions.

“The only word for this is treason,” the Congress leader said, demanding a Supreme Court-monitored probe. He also demanded the resignation of the home minister.’
