Abstract: In this research it is planned to analyze the Right to Privacy as forming an intrinsic part of the fundamental right of ‘right to life and personal liberty’ under Article 21 of Constitution of India, and the way it is being abused via media trial being carried out by various media houses. Media is considered as the fourth pillar of our Indian democracy and plays a very important role in our daily lives as well as for safeguard of democracy, dilution of concentration of power within the country, it is very important to keep the check and balance and due to lack of Constitutional and legislative measures to protect privacy, the big role media plays in our democracy having such laws expressly can be viewed as hindrance in letting the media express their views openly that too beyond the reasonable restrictions as imbibed in the Constitutional framework of our Country.
