Sheeba was the latest one to be taken for questioning in the ongoing drug racket. She had now become the new face of the current scandal in every news channel.
Even before proven guilty, she was pursued by the press relentlessly who hounded her with questions, pertinent or not. She had been facing the social media trial ever since her name started doing rounds.
Media houses thinking themselves to be the lone saviour of the constitution, just went over the top, analyzing situations as they deemed right during the prime time television.
She begged for mercy, requesting people not to judge her and her family, on the basis of just hearsay, to no avail.
A week later, when she was deemed innocent by the court of justice, the same people who had accused her, had started cornering the next victim.
Will the media, who are too eager to run the unverified stories and the common people who add their two cents under the many hashtags, without much botheration about the concerned parties, take responsibility for the tarnished image and the lost job opportunities for all the wrongly accused people by the media trial?
