In its petition submitted to the Bombay HC, the channel has also sought an investigation by the CBI instead of Mumbai police to ensure a free and fair probe into the matter.
Another reason cited for seeking a CBI probe was the pan-India applicability and repurcursions of the case.
Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh had , in a press conference on October 8, announced that they have busted a racket involved in manipulation of TRP. The police had named three channels in the scam: Republic TV, Box cinema and Fakt Marathi.
The police has arrested 6 people while Republic TV COO and CFO have appeared before the police for questioning.
