Indian Intelligence Bought Pegasus From Israel: NYT Report

Indian intelligence agencies bought the Israeli Pegasus software in a deal pegged at “dozens of millions of dollars,” according to the New York Times. In a report, it said the deal was signed during Narendra Modi’s visit to Israel in 2017 and cleared by Benjamin Netanyahu. The software was described as a high grade cyber weapon on Israel’s export control list. The report said Israeli engineers would have travelled to India to install it and Mossad would have facilitated their movement.
