09th December 2020
The Bombay high court has been approached by the ARG outlier media private limited (company which owns republic TV) & Arnab Goswami to seek the stay of the further investigation of the TRP scam case.
The petitioners said that they are being selectively targeted by the government for speaking against its policies. They have said that the Crime Intelligence Unit has malafied intentions against them.
The petitioners have also alleged the Mumbai police for harassing & torturing Ganshyam Singh in the police custody who is the assistant vice president of republic TV.
The case was all about manipulating the TRP ratings which got reported by the Hansa research group.
The petitioners prayed for the transfer of the case to CBI and also to give directions to all the respondents not to take any coercive steps against them.
