BARC cooperating with Mumbai Police in ongoing investigation on TRP scam
The Broadcast Audience Research Council India has issued a press statement stating that it is fully cooperating with Mumbai Police in its ongoing investigation on the TRP scam where two former BARC employees have been arrested. Former CEO and COO of BARC India, Partho Dasgupta and Romil Ramgarhia respectively have been arrested for questioning by Mumbai Police.
The statement issued by BARC India read, "The development related to the two ex-employees of BARC India is a part of an ongoing investigation for which BARC management continues to extend its support and cooperation to the law enforcement agencies. It would consequently be inappropriate for BARC to comment any further at this stage.
Every employee of BARC India is expected to conform to a Code of Conduct & Ethics and any infringement invites suitable disciplinary action.
We will continue to ensure that WHAT INDIA WATCHES is reported accurately and with utmost integrity. It’s a responsibility we owe all our stakeholders."
