Mumbai police on Tuesday arrested Republic TV’s distribution head Ghanshyam Singh in connection with the alleged TRP rigging scam.

Singh, who is also assistant vice president of the Republic Media Network, was picked up from his residence around 7.40 am, the official said.

Singh was earlier grilled on multiple occasions by the crime branch of Mumbai police, the official said.

The fake TRP scam came to light last month when rating agency Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) filed a complaint through Hansa Research Group, alleging that certain television channels were rigging TRP numbers.
