TRP scam: TV channel gave BARC ex-COO holiday packages, say cops

MUMBAI: The city crime branch, probing the TRP manipulation scam, on Friday said that Romil Ramgarhia, former COO of Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC), was offered holiday packages and shopping coupons by a TV channel for sharing confidential information on the chosen audience for assessing viewership patterns.
Police said he had received illegal financial benefits in the last few years. The crime branch said this was evident from WhatsApp texts shared between Ramgarhia and the director of a company that runs a TV channel. On Friday, they sent a team to the BARC office in Mumbai.
