Republic TV’s head of distribution, Ghanshyam Singh, was arrested on Tuesday in connection with the alleged Television Rating Point (TRP) rigging scam, an official from the Mumbai criminal branch said. Singh, who is also deputy vice president of the Republic Media Network, was picked up from his residence around 7:40 a.m., the official said.

The latest arrest brought to 12 the number of people held by the Crime Intelligence Unit (CIU) branch of crime in the case. Singh has been questioned on several occasions by the CIU, the official said.

The bogus TRP scam came to light last month when the Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) rating agency filed a complaint through the Hansa Research Group, alleging that some TV stations were manipulating TRP numbers. Hansa is one of BARC’s suppliers on engagement with panel houses or people counters.
