The Mumbai Police has named senior television journalist Arnab Goswami as an accused in the alleged TRP (Television Rating Points) rigging scam in its second chargesheet filed before a court in Mumbai on Tuesday.

The chargesheet was submitted before a magistrate's court by the police's Crime Intelligence Unit probing the case.

"Among others, Goswami and ARG Outlier have been named as accused in the chargesheet," lawyer of Goswami, the Editor-in-Chief of Republic TV, said.

 

The alleged fake TRP scam came to light in October last year when the rating agency Broadcast Audience Research Council filed a complaint through Hansa Research Group, alleging that certain television channels were rigging TRP numbers.
