MUMBAI: The Mumbai Police, time and again shows its face by arresting Republic TV CEO Vikas Khanchandani in connection with the alleged fake TRP case. The arrest of Khanchandani comes just a month after the Mumbai Police had arrested and assaulted Republic TV chief Arnab Goswami in another 2018 suicide case.
The CEO of Republic TV & Republic Bharat Vikas Khanchandani and its Chief Financial Officer Sundaram have moved Sessions Court, Mumbai on Thursday seeking anticipatory bail in the fake TRP scam case registered by the Mumbai police.
The arrest of Republic TV CEO interestingly comes just a day ahead of his interim bail hearing, that was scheduled to be heard on coming Monday.
Besides this, Arnab Goswami, the editor – in chief of Republic TV on Sunday has made a national appeal to the courts to intervene to stop attacks on the independent news organisation.
Arnab Goswami also said that the channel is going to move the Supreme Court against the witchhunt but will reach out to High Court first. The channel is moving the Holiday Bench for bail. Earlier, Republic TV’s Ghanshyam Singh was made to spend 26 days in prison where he was allegedly tortured by the Mumbai Police.
