Fake TRP Scam: In a press conference held on Thursday, Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh told reporters that the city police are probing a scam involving manipulation of TRPs. He identified three channels, namely Fakt Marathi, Box Cinema, and Republic-TV which the police commissioner said are involved in rigging the apparatus used by BARC to rate television channels. Republic TV bribed people to watch as claimed by the reports.
