As per my view, sting operation is a legal action, we are only talks about our constitutional rights but we can not ignore our fundamental duties. The Constitution [Part-IVA] lays down certain fundamental duties for the citizens of this country and Article 51A (b) provides that it is the duty of every citizen of India to cherish and follow the noble ideals which inspired our national struggle for freedom. One of the noble ideals of our national struggle for freedom was to have an independent and corruption free India. The other duties assigned to the citizen by the Constitution is to uphold and protect the sovereignty, unity and integrity of India and I consider that sovereignty, unity and integrity of this country cannot be protected and safeguarded if the corruption is not removed from this country. So that why we can say that if sting operations necessary tool.

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.

Yes sting operations should be carried out but there should be some parameters for it. Sting operation should not be only for TRP or entertainment but it should helpful for eradication of bad and harmful things from society, and it should be present in actual condition not with adding spice on it. It should be really important and well deserve. And most important thing is that what happens after sting operation? some action should be take on who found guilty. They should be continuously in touch with what is happening with who found guilty in it. They should not leave it once TRP comes down. The result or actual punishment should be there then only we can say sting operations are helpful for us.

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.

HI everyone. I am a journalist in a private channel. I saw your discussions and most of them were supporting the sting operations. I am happy for it and I want to know about my sting operation plans and need to ask whether they are ethical or not. I am not mentioning my name or place because it might invite trouble ;).

1. ) Approaching a Thaluka office and applying for a fake community certificate where an VAO gets bribe for doing so.

2. ) Giving pollution free certificate by state pollution control board for an old vehicle which emits pollution by getting bribe and RTO.

Its my pleasure if you can also provide some ideas for some issues.

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.

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.

Hi Friends,

As per my perception, Sting Operation is one of the best formula to rein the corrupt politicians, bureaucrats or the corrupt organisation and etc. The said operation is so sophisticated if used carefully and religiously.

But country like India, there is lot of anomalies, discrepancies, bias are there in wiping the corrupts one.

In Most cases who have been caught in such operation, who has not given some percentage/share to the operationer or they have no support of a big hand.

It is good if used religiously for the prog of nation.

In my opinion sting ooperations have a become a integal part of the Indian society. It is these sting operations which have reavealed many hidden stories of the Indian society. Not to forget the cases of our ministers & many top officials ranging from business to sports. The government is of the people, by the people, for the people, and it is the right of every Indian citizen to know what is happening right aaround him. I suppose the time has come to reveal those lurked speices in our society and to eliminate them.
