THE Supreme Court on Thursday asked the Republic Media Group to approach the Bombay High Court in the Television Rating Points (TRP) scam case registered by the Mumbai Police. A bench comprising Justice D Y Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and Indira Banerjee said the High Court has been working throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the media group should approach it as its office is located at Worli.
Senior advocate Harish Salve, appearing for the media house, expressed apprehensions about the ongoing probe. The bench observed that “of late, there is a tendency that commissioners are giving interviews”. The Mumbai police has registered a case in the TRP scam and summoned Republic TV’s chief financial officer S Sundaram. The police have already arrested owners of channels Fakt Marathi and Box Cinema in the case.
