Mumbai Police arrested Vikas Khanchandani, CEO of Republic TV, in the alleged manipulation case of the TRP.
Recently, Republic TV Network alleged that during interrogation by the Mumbai police, its assistant vice president (distribution) Ghanshyam Singh, who was released on bail by a city court on December 5 in the TRP dispute case, was “tortured and assaulted”
The Republic Media Network filed an interim application before the High Court of Bombay stating that Singh had been lashed with a “chakki belt” while in custody with the Mumbai Police. He was arrested on 10 November in connection with the alleged Television Rating Point (TRP) scam. The interim application states that the police said “inko maaro maro maro” in Marathi.
It is said that Singh had been forced to extend his hand to the police officers and that he had been whipped by a chakki belt three times (twice on the right hand and once on the left hand).
It is therefore clear that the methods of torture were planned and put in place even before the questioning of Mr. Singh began since the room was already laden with the torture instruments said. Mr. Singh suffered immense pain and cried out loudly because of the force with which he was lashing the police officer but the subordinate police officers following the instruction of the senior police officer kep.
On 9 October, 11 October, 20 October, and 21 October, Singh appeared before the Mumbai Police, and on 10 November, he was arrested by the Mumbai Police.
Earlier, Republic TV editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami on Tuesday moved the Bombay High Court to request a stay in the alleged Television Rating Points (TRP) manipulation scam for further investigation by the Mumbai police.
The petition, lodged by Goswami and ARG Outlier Media, which owns Republic TV, also alleged that the police in custody had tortured one of the company’s employees.
It sought protection from the “malicious witch hunt” allegedly being carried out by the Maharashtra authorities for all employees.
