The Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Mumbai Crime Branch on Monday questioned the COO of Republic TV Priyanka Mukherjee for more than five hours in connection with the alleged TRP scam and the involvement of Republic TV. She has been asked to appear again on Wednesday.

The Crime Branch has summoned her multiple times in connection with the case but she appeared before the agency only on Tuesday. The investigating officer has also summoned CEO of Republic TV Vikas Khanchandani for questioning on Wednesday.

The agency has begun summoning the top officials of Republic TV after a thorough investigation. The crime branch has already arrested the channel's distribution head, Ghanshyam Singh, last week. "We have got enough evidence against Republic TV, we are just looking into who all are aware and involved in this TRP manipulation," an officer said.
