NBA asks BARC to share details of TV9 tampering allegations inquiry
NBA President writes letter to BARC Chairman
NBA President has writen a letter to the Chairman of BARC, drawing his attention to several news reports about videos of a sting operation as a purported proof of tampering of panel homes by TV9 Bharatvarsh and the response by BARC that it carried out a detailed investigation into the compromised homes and the manipulation of data.
In his letter, the President has stated that NBA is rather surprised to note from the news reports that BARC has so quickly investigated into the sting operation and also passed a judgement that those who appeared in those videos were “paid to say what they did” and the videos are “fake”, NBA said in a statement.
"NBA desires to know who conducted the investigation? Since the allegations were against BARC, NBA presumes that the investigation was conducted by a third party. NBA would like BARC to share this investigation report with NBA to help understand how the investigations were concluded so quickly that there was no tampering of data and the videos are fake. This is crucial in light of the fact that allegations are about an organization which, by BARC’s own admission, has a dubious past. It has a history of indulging in such malpractices and for which the ratings of TV9 Telugu were suspended. Was this record made available to the investigators?," NBA has said.
President of NBA has sought an urgent response with the details of the investigation report.
