The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday said that it has taken over a case of alleged manipulation of television ratings point (TRP) from the Uttar Pradesh Police, which was registered in Lucknow.

A CBI official said, "The CBI has taken over the probe from Lucknow police on the recommendation of the Uttar Pradesh government."

According to the CBI official, a case was registered in Lucknow's Hazratganj police station on the basis of a complaint.

The official said that a case has been registered against unidentified people with charges of manipulating TRPs on receiving payments.

TRPs of a channel or a programme are used to measure its popularity.

The alleged TRP scam came to the fore after the Mumbai Police earlier this month registered a case in Mumbai.

Mumbai Police have arrested several people in connection with the TRP scam.
