TRP scam: Was paid Rs 400 to watch Republic new channel everyday for 2 hours, says witness


Statement of one witness in fake TRP scam: "In January 2019, one person came to my house and told us he is going to place barometers to calculate TRP through my house. After that in January 2020, one person Dinesh Vishwakarma, along with Vishal Bhandari, came to my house for maintenance and TRP reading. They asked me, 'Do you watch Republic's new channel?' I told them no I don't watch the Republic news channel because I don't like it. Then they told me to watch Republic new channel every day for two hours and said that I will be paid additional Rs 400rs to watch the Republic news channel. When I said yes, they paid me Rs 400 in cash."
