TRP Scam

In Oct 2020, the Mumbai Police officers accused Republic TV and 2 smaller channels of rigging the TRP ratings system. The Police alleged that the channel inflated its ratings by bribing low-income individuals, including people who did not comprehend English.[1] The Editor-in-Chief of Republic TV, Arnab Goswami has denied the allegations. Bhandari has backed Republic TV and Arnab and started #WeSupportArnabGoswami campaign on Twitter.[2] Bhandari also demanded for CBI probe into alleged TRP scam.[3]

Sushant Singh Rajput Death Case

Bhandari researched on the circumstances of death of Sushant Singh Rajput. Alongside Subramanian Swamy, he fought for the CBI probe into the mysterious death of the actor, to which CBI probe was eventually sanctioned by the Supreme Court of India in August, 2020.[4][5] In July 2020, Bhandari wrote to Mumbai Police to collect and preserve all tower data from the locality of late Bollywood actor's flat in Bandra.[6][7] Bhandari also initiated two digital protests for the late actor’s justice. Reportedly, around two million people from around the globe participated in the first protest on 22 July, 2020. The second protest was held August 7, 2020.[8] The protests were supported by Bollywood actors like Shekhar Suman.[8] In August 2020, Bhandari filed a case against psychotherapist Susan Walker, who allegedly treated late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, primarily questioning if she fulfilled mandatory requirements for those with foreign degree to practice in India.[9]
