Though I appreciate the sting operations efforts in catching the people involved in murky deals , one cannot ignore the emergence of a disturbing phenomenon . Viewing it from a different angle, aren’t they guilty of breaching one’s privacy ? Again in a mad rush to expose the ‘scandals ‘ haven’t they encroached upon individual’s right of natural justice as in most of the cases the appparently guilty people come to be branded offenders without given chance of proving their innocence ?
Let’s be very clear that at the heart of these operations is the urge to gain instant success instead of a honest desire to uproot corrupt malpractises prevalent in the society . So long they remain fuelled by ‘ sensationalism ‘ , I am afraid a conscious citizen would always be reluctant in giving them their due .
