Closest advisers to the Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama and members of his staff were potential targets of NSO’s Pegasus. Media houses who are part of the global collaborative project investigating the database of numbers that may have been targeted by the spyware said on July 22. At least 300 persons in India & as many as 50,000 worldwide have been identified by the global collaborative investigative project as targets of the surveillance. A report by The Wire, a digital news platform, which is part of the collaboration, stated that phone numbers of several Tibetan officials, activists and clerics were found in the database, starting from the late 2017 to early 2019. The report identified the targets as staff of the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Urgyen Trinley Dorji & Tempa Tsering, the Director of India and East Asia at Dalai Lama’s office in New Delhi. Meanwhile, the BJP on July 22 denounced the global Pegasus Project media investigation as “fake news” &“yellow journalism”. It claimed that Amnesty International had said that the list of phone numbers suspected to be under surveillance was not directly related to the Israeli company NSO Group. The global human rights organisation, however, issued a statement debunking the “false rumours” & “inaccurate media stories” & stressing that it “categorically stands by” the findings of the investigation.
