West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has stirred a fresh storm in the Pegasus spyware controversy by saying that the state too had received an offer for purchasing ‘machines’, but had refused to do so.

She added that Rs 25 crore were asked for as the charge, and this was around four to five years ago. “Information reached us as well. We said we don’t want (it),” Mamata said.
