Court sends Ex-BARC CEO Partho Dasgupta to Police custody in alleged TRP Scam

 On Friday, a Magistrate’s Court remanded Partho Dasgupta, an Ex-CEO of the rating agency Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC), to Police Custody till December 28 in the alleged fake TRP scam.


Dasgupta was arrested by the Mumbai crime branch from Pune district on Thursday and produced before the court on Friday.


The police sought his remand for further probe, saying his custodial interrogation was required to understand his role in the scam.


Dasgupta’s Lawyer Kamlesh Ghumre argued that the offences of cheating and criminal breach of trust for which he has been booked were not made out against him.


The probe was harassment and use of pressuring tactics by police, the lawyer alleged.

The probe was over and therefore his detention was not needed, the court observed.


Most of the accused in the case are now out on bail.


Mumbai police began the probe after the BARC, a rating agency, filed a complaint about the rigging of TRP by some channels.

TRP, measured by recording viewership data at sample households, is crucial as it helps TV channels attract advertisers. It was alleged that some of these households were being bribed to tune into certain channels to ramp up their ratings.

The plaintiff may appear as puzzled or worried through a hazardous state of affairs created via the defendant and to store his man or woman or property, or now and again to store a third party from such danger, he may take a choice risk. The law, therefore, lets in the plaintiff to come across a choice danger to shop by himself from the chance created via the defendant.

The position can be defined by means of the case of Jones v . Boyce . In that case, the plaintiff used to be a passenger in the defendant’s train and instruct
