A sting operation is basically an investigation by means of deception to find out about the criminal activities of an individual or an organization. It strictly involves electronic surveillance, fixed surveillance and moving surveillance as well. It is the strongest form of an investigation to conduct on the subject.
Any kind of deviation from the sting operation might lead to a biased decision or operation, this can ultimately fail the investigation. A sting operation can help the common man by showing the true personality of high and corrupt officers. These kind of investigations helps us in moving towards a corrupt-free country, without any illegal activities or financial losses in terms of black money.
