Sting operation does not violate any of our constitutional rights. This is because it is carried out on such people in public office who misuse the chair.

the idea is to bring forth the truth about those who are mis using public office such as Politicians.

since sting operation is not carried out on common man to reveal his personal secrets hence it does not violate our right to Privacy.

kindly read this landmark judgment passed by Delhi high court which made sting operation Legal in India:
