If WhatsApp says its chats are end-to-end encrypted, how did the Narcotics Control Bureau of NCB get their hands on them? Can authorities access your WhatsApp account? This question has arisen after seeing reports of NCB summoning Deepika Padukone and other actors in the drug probe related to the Sushant Singh Rajput death investigation based on WhatsApp chats. The chats were sourced from the mobile phone of talent manager Jaya Saha. But how are those chats retrieved from the phone? Many believe that it all happened using mobile phone cloning. This isn't a new technique as it has existed for years. Mobile phone cloning has been in place for quite some time, with cases registered against bad actors cloning phones in India dated back in 2005.
