To: Parliamentary Subcommittee on Information Technology
We, the undersigned, demand that the parliamentary subcommittee on Information Technology open an investigation into the NetWire attack on the computers of the Bhima-Koregaon arrestees. There is overwhelming evidence that a malware attack took place. One of the world’s leading digital forensic investigation agencies, Arsenal Consulting, has conducted a thorough investigation and brought to light crucial evidence confirming the attack and the planting of incriminating documents on the hard drives of the Bhima-Koregaon arrestees. Independent experts have verified Arsenal’s findings. While Pegasus has been used to attack our democracy by snooping on leaders and common folk alike, the NetWire attack is arguably even more heinous in that it goes beyond surveillance and into direct assault on the life and liberty of citizens through the planting of evidence. Those responsible must be named and held accountable for these attacks.
