Good afternoon to all.

According to my view, a sting operation is must be applied in India but along with some rule and regulations because sting operation is an opportunity to provide that person to convince their crime but some time it's too harmful towards its dignity and reputation because if that person committed a crime that's fine for this operation but by mistake if that person is innocent one then there will be a huge loss for this because a person can bear any losses if it's dignity is lost then everything is lost so this type of truth revealed operation must for a mostly corrupted politician and modern fake holy person etc.

Thank you all.

It is true that sting operations indeed reveal the true 'corrupt' side of political leaders and famous personalities.

However, the corrupt side can only be revealed if there 'is' one. Therefore, sting operations must be carried out on the basis of one exact proof against the person in order to find more, and not just on the basis of suspicion.

Furthermore, supporting the judgement of the press council of India and Article 19 (1) of the constitution, sting operations must be of public interest and should be done and presented with great care in order to not hurt or offend the public, by the reporter himself, under the authority of the editor.

We must support sting operations. They Will prevent the people from doing wrong. People tend to indulge in wrongful acts if there is no Chance of being caught. In most of the cases, the evidence is tampered with. But a sting operation right these wrongs.

According to me, Sting operations should be carried out. There should be certain limits (regulations by law) related to the sting operations. If the sting operation reveals a personal life secret, it should immediately be suppressed. But if it reveals an act of corruption, it should be published for the masses to witness, given that no exaggeration of the facts is done while revealing it to the people (as is done in most of the cases). This way, the masses will come to know only the true facts about their leaders.

Yes, Sting operations should be carried out but only when there is a proper doubt in mind of officials.

If a person is engaged in some criminal activities and his social neighbours know very well about it but are not able to get evidence then sting operation is the only way to make criminal accept the truth himself and before hidden camera so that everyone can know about it.

I have mixed thought in this regard. In my opinion, sting operations are fine until it violates someone's privacy. Sometimes stings are proved to be very effective in dealing with the corrupt persons. But stings which violate someone's privacy or some private affairs that have nothing to do with the public interest are really not required at all. Such stings should be criticized and not given any attention. But unfortunately, this type of sting gains much momentum which is very unfortunate.

Hello flock,

I am Narayan Khanna, any operation that is done secretly without knowing to anybody with an intention to protect the sovereignty of country is termed as sting operation. One of the best sting operation carried out by India is the case of Ravindra Khaushik- a person called as "black tiger" of India by "Indira Gandhi". This Black Tiger secretly joined Pakistan armed forces and give all necessary information that helps to foil all the threats to India.

Definitely, Sting operation if done in a calculative way gives an advantage. But agencies and operators keep in mind they don't have to breach the Law at any point in time.

Hello everyone, sting operation is a technique of recording a person without his knowledge. In my opinion sting operations should be carried out. I know it's not good to record someone like this but if person is doing something wrong then this is a very good way to expose him. There are many cases of sting operation which have exposed people taking bribes. Thus this could help to reduce the corruption and we have proof against the person who did any crime.

So I think it is helpful if used correctly.

Thank you.

Yes, in my opinion, sting operations should definitely be done this will enable the people working in the govt as well as the private organization's to work according to the norms and standards.

This could definitely de done when sting operation are done to bring out the loopholes rather than doing it for TRP (target rating point).

Out of many of them, few can be remembered for a long time when they have done to make something good for the society rather than for personal benefit.

Out of which the 1st sting operation is done by Tehelka Channel in which an actor called Shakti Kapoor was found as a sex scandal.

And also there are many of them which are done for TRP and personal benefits.

I completely support conducting sting operation when they are done as per norms keeping in view or personal life and bringing out the accused person involved in bribes, scams, sex scandals and various mall practices.

Yes I agree with the sting operation should be carried out in INDIA, but with some rules, regulations and evidence for the issue with permission from corresponding authority. Since sting operations may be used for personal revenge or for owns improvement by degrading the persons reputation. Yes obviously sting operation will bring illegal things out like corruption, bride and etc. But it will definitely harm the dignity of the person involved in this if they are innocent.

Undoubtedly sting operations are legitimate weapon for an investigative journalists. Sting, anyways is not a new practice. Its been into practice since ages. We all have have heard a lot of Dadi-Nani stories about kings who would dress up like a labour and would roam around to learn what the people have to say about them or their kingdom. Wasn't that sting- hiding the identity using false identity to attain first hand information.

Contemporary sting operations may be termed as technical advancements of this ages old practice of truth finding Sting operations catch a person live on camera committing crime or talking about it; the tapes tell the story. Till here all is fine. The questions arise after this. How many of those who were caught on camera could be punished in the court of law? Does court accept these sting operations as a major evidence in the case?

How a journalist can prove that he did not plot the sting operation? Is it acceptable to violate certain legal/social norms in order to attain some video footage? No personal or professional interests/enmity exists behind the operation; and the most important- How will the "public interest" clause will be justified?

Probably, it is the last question of the previous paragraph which leads to most of the debates. For me proven public interest and effective end results are most important. Sting must lead to a legal action and punishments. If it fails to achieve this; it remains simply as a TRP booster for a few weeks nothing beyond it.

ALL sting operations are about organized people in law enforcement and their civilian operatives which usually consists of people that are either buddy's to law enforcement and relatives of people in law enforcement and girlfriends of people in law enforcement and the purpose of all sting operations is the organized targeting of individuals for the purpose of framing/entrapping. Murdering of their targets!

Sting operations have been done by authority's and their civilian operatives for many decades, with no oversight into their practices, and their is no limit to the amount of civilians police can recruit in sting operations, which is WHY they tend to recruit anyone they are buddy's to or people they are related to or even people they have sexual relations with!

Common tactics of sting operations consist of but not limited to taking over the surrounding area surrounding their target where their target lives, an example would be if a target lives in an apartment, then sting operatives would take over around 4 to 8 apartments surrounding the target in order to have full control over the area!

Sting operatives tend to stage in a street theater fashion crimes using operatives whether they are undercover cops or civilian operatives, and do so with intent of framing/blaming the target!

Police rely on surrounding their target with civilian operatives so that police can use them as witnesses in a trial and to testify against the target and give blame to the target and to back up the lies of authority's in the prosecution of the target!

Another common tactic of sting operatives is to use doubles and photogenic photo's to frame their targets and use such photogenic photo's to vilify in the eyes of other people so people will view the target as a bad guy without even bothering with a trial, and police use those staged photogenic photo's to vilify their target on TV news stations and on news websites all the time!

ALL sting operatives are paid, trained, liars and are immune to prosecution because government allows and permits police to keep their sting operations covert and therefore they are not required in courts to admit to such operations and because of this any and all complaints on sting operations tend to get ignored and suppressed and stonewalled and victims of sting operations have no recourse at law for remedy should they become victim of a sting operation!

Many victims of sting operations get poisoned by the operatives that are surrounding them, victims become ill, and police use their power of influence at hospitals to cover up the poisonings and because of police influence with doctors at hospitals the hospital will not take a toxicology test and will pretend on their paperwork to not know what is wrong with the patient!

The way average people would hook up a water filtration system to their sink to purify their tap water just so happens to be sting operatives favorite way of slowly poisoning to death their targets, sting operatives will hook up a water filtration system to their targets water tap line and will heal it with concentrate poison, thus the target each and every time he/she makes a meal or makes a pot of coffee is getting slowly poisoned to death!

Dirty trick of sting operatives is that most all apartment managers/landlords tend to be people that are either related to people in law enforcement or are buddy's to people in law enforcement or are or were past girlfriends to people in law enforcement, in other words their sting operatives!

Most people working in the news media tend to be either people that are buddy's to people in law enforcement, or related to people in law enforcement, or are or were past girlfriends to people in law enforcement, in short they are also sting operatives!

Because of this organized corruption running rampant within our system most people know little or nothing about sting operations, and that is by design because the system does not WANT people to know or understand in detail what a sting operation is or what they do or what they are about!

Hello friends;.

Its bhawani ; our today's GD topic as we all know is whether sting operations should carried out or not?

In my personal opinion it should be go through. ; because if you are innocent and not indulged in any crime; corruption ; discrimination or biased work than you can't afraid of anything or if you are a person who are indulged in such type of crimes what are not good for society or against the rules and regulation which you should have to follow being a good government servant; politician; leader; businessman; police man or whoever you are.

But in some cases a innocent person is victimised by so called media personalities for their own TRP so this type of sting operation which are done for" just like that" should be stop or ban.

Govt should make a policy that if a sting operation is being done there any innocent shouldn't' be victimised.

This will help our system. To cure and heal this; from corruption another social disease.

So it should be done but with humanity.

Thank you.

Hi everyone, today's topic is whether sting operations should be carried out or not.

In my opinion, this discussion can be analyzed w.r.t the points mentioned below:

1. What is a sting operation and why is it carried out?

2. What are the effects w.r.t Social, political and legal aspects?

Sometimes it is required to take disguise to unveil some other persons under cover. You have to become one of them or pretend that you are doing the same crime what they are doing. Then only they will mingle with you with their actual form.

So, sting operations are deceptions that are carried out by law enforcement officers with the help of public to catch the suspect or gather evidence against him.

The situations where it is not possible to capture the criminal by straightforward methods then these methods are incorporated.

Politically, sting operations create a lot of buzz when a person with high political status and power is caught red handed.

Legally, the suspects may seek exemptions under entrapment.

Socially it has some adverse effects as sometimes unmasking near and dear ones create trouble within a family or a society.

String operation provides us with the evidence that can be used against a particular person or organisation to prove them guilty in the court. Since our law system works only on the basis of evidences and in most of the cases due to lack of evidences, the suspect is not punished. This gives them the confidence to continue with their evil doings.

It is due to these operations that the people came to know about the huge black money makers and about the corrupt politicians who are eating our country. It was not easy to punish them but due to the footage captured by these operations it became possible to punish them. The truth of mid-day meal, free/cheap books and medicines for economically backward people etc became a burning issue due to these operations.

These operations are just like the mirror that provides us with the true image of a person or an organisation. We, the people of India do have the right to know what exactly is going on with the taxes that we pay. Where exactly is the money going. Though beneficial, care should be taken that someone's personal life is not hampered. This should be used to help law to take its decisions. Hence these should definately be carried out.

Hello friends,

As per as I am concerned with sting operation should not be carried out because most of the time it gives the result in favor of wrongdoing people and in that case innocent people come in the category of corruption and unethical things.

When law enforcement try to catch a thief by luring him but it entices most of the time that person who have not done anything wrong in his whole life.

At-last the main point is to catch a thief is good thing but without catching a decent person.

One of the noble ideals of our national struggle for freedom was to have an independent and corruption free India.

According to me Sting Operations are undertook with a view to look into the working of the government or to see whether the acts of any individual is against the public order. On the basis of the purpose Sting Operations can be classified as positive and negative. Positive Sting Operation is one which results in the interest of the society, which pierces the veils of the working of the government. It is carried out in the public interest. Due to positive sting operation society is benefited because it makes government responsible and accountable. It leads to the transparency in the government. On the other hand negative sting operations do not benefit the society, but they do harm the society and its individuals. It unnecessarily violates the privacy of the individual without any beneficial results to the society. These types of Sting operations if allowed then it will hamper the freedom of the individuals and restricts their rights. Here are some examples which we can distinguish as positive and negative sting operations.

From my point of view, 'STING OPERATION' is something which brings out the reality of something or a person which in general can't be seen means suppose a very good and reputed politician takes money for providing a job. This illegal work will remain hidden if a sting operation is not done. If the sting operation done becomes successful then it sets an example for other corrupt politicians that they may have to face the same thing. It seems very good from this point of view but the other way of viewing says it has detrimental effect when the sting operation is done relating to a person's personal life. It means it has both good as well as bad effect. Therefore it should have some restrictions also.

Also keep in mind that when we make a string operation it should be reasonable and about the critical situation.

Let us take one example of mine once a postman in chandigarh, is taking bribe each time when there is a mail (post) for me. When I refuse to pay it he will told to me that he will not give me the mail, thats why one day I make his sting operation using my mobile and then, shown the video next time my latter is there, form that day that person change its behavior and my sting operation is success.

Sting operation is a very critical act which hampers someone's privacy. So for using such thing one should have evidences to do so. Although it is very good to make such corrupt guys ashame of themselves in front of people. But with specific reason and for the welfare of society. It should not be used by one individual for his interest.

As per my view, sting operation should not be carried out further. The story of sting operation in India started from Tahalka channel in which the case of Shakti kapoor, a film acter, was on news for the sex scandel. As we know each coin has two sides. In same way, Sting operation has pros and cons. But sting operation has 80% disadvantage and only 20% advantage. First of all I talk about some good aspects of sting operation like LIC scam which is known as loan for bribe. This is really good aspects where we need to stop this kind of corruption. But we think other side, there are many loopholes in sting operation. It is found that in India mostly sting operation is desinged by the media with fully planning how to execute it. Till now there were many sting operation have been, but overall profit is taken by the media while making breaking news.

Now days it has been the source of breaking news. The latest example of Uma Khurana, a principal of delhi school, was on news that she is involved in the sex scandel of school girl and exciting girls for the prostitution. But the most surprised thing is that there are no consolidated evidences.

So I conclude that through the sting operation only innocent people get in trouble and they need to pay huge amount in terms of image as well as money also.

Thank you.

In a country like India where corruption is on high node acts like sting operations helps the pople to know what's the reality or the real face of peoples more importantly if opertions are done in people intrest. It reavels what the real story behind what peoples are unaware of. But now a days what we see news channels they do fake sting operations only to raise their trp which I think is completely wrong and shound not be brodcasted. So, what's d real story sting operations should be carried but not for rainsing news channels publicity but taking benifit of society in consideration.

Ya even though sting operations reveal the act of corruption, the people involved in that particular fradulant act are not punished. They should be punished such that those people will never do it again. Hence sting operations should be carried out.

May be the string operatiion are to find out the corrupted faces of the society but the action to punish or penalize them is not taken by the government. Its just for the name sake but in reality nothing happens to the corrupted ones but the life of the person who carries out entire operation suffers due these corrupted people.

Sting Operations are undertook with a view to look into the working of the govt. or to see whether the acts of any individual is against the public order. On the basis of the purpose Sting Operations can be classified as positive and negative. Positive Sting Operation is one which results in the interest of the society, which pierces the veils of the working of the government. It is carried out in the public interest. Due to positive sting operation society is benefited because it makes government responsible and accountable. It leads to the transparency in the government. On the other hand negative sting operations do not benefit the society, but they do harm the society and its individuals. It unnecessarily violates the privacy of the individual without any beneficial results to the society. These types of Sting operations if allowed then it will hamper the freedom of the individuals and restricts their rights

Yes, I agree with you. As sting operations are carried out to reveal the true face of a person or community. String operations are the only means by which we are able to know the corrupt face behind the noble face of a person.

But the persons performing the string operations must have proper information about the involvement of a particular person in any illegal act. So that the person should not get hurt and his public image won't get down.

As per as I am concerned with sting operation should be carried out because we come to know that how much corruption does spread there? If we talk about telangan sting operation, that guy is genius, he stole more money and it is not possible if sting operation does not carry.

Not for government today corruption is also spreading in private sector also. If we want that hidden (Corruption, Bribe, Fraud) part should be highlighted that thing can also possible with the help of sting operation.
