As per news report of NDTV, the Chief Justice was hearing another matter when he told one of the lawyers - who also represents one of the Pegasus petitioners - of this development. "We wanted to pass an order on the matter before this week... but some members we thought of considering for the (expert) committee... for personal reasons they declined to be part of this committee. Hence the delay," he said. "We will try to pass an order on Pegasus next week," he added. The Chief Justice's remarks are significant given that the government, in the last hearing on September 13, offered to set up a committee to inquire into allegations of violation of privacy.
