Partho Dasgupta claims Arnab Goswami paid him Rs 40 lakh in three years for fixing TRP

Former CEO of Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) India, Partho Dasgupta, in a written statement to the Mumbai Police, claimed that Republic TV chief Arnab Goswami had paid him US $12000 (about Rs 8,75,910) for two family trips. Dasgupta also stated that he received a total of Rs 40 lakhs in three years for fixing the TRP in favor of Republic TV. The Mumbai police had filed a 3,600-page supplementary charge sheet on January 11 including a forensic audit report of the BARC, alleged WhatsApp chats between Dasgupta and Goswami and statements of 59 former council staff members and cable operators. However, Dasgupta’s lawyer Arjun Singh denied all the allegations and said that the statement have been recorded under compulsion and it “does not have any evidentiary value in the court of law.”
