• This study aims at appropriating the social and print media construct and coverage
    of human rights violations in the post Eelam war between Indian Tamil fishermen
    and their conflict with Sri Lankan Navy in the Palk Bay. The alleged intrusion of the
    Indian trawlers into the Sri Lankan water and the rebuttal by Sri Lankan Navy
    leading to the torture, arrest and at times, death of Indian fishermen is being
    widely articulated and debated in Indian and foreign media. An attempt has been
    made here using the framing theory to investigate how human rights violations
    were constructed in Indian print media (Dinamani and The Hindu) and socials media
