The Crime Intelligence Unit (CIU) of the Mumbai Police on Tuesday filed a third chargesheet before a magistrate's court here in the alleged fake Television Ratings Points (TRP) scam.
The trio has moved the high court seeking to quash the FIR and subsequent chargesheet filed by the police against them.
The court was hearing a bunch of pleas filed by Goswami and ARG media seeking several reliefs in the case.
The agency had filed a money laundering case against the channels after studying a Mumbai Police FIR for alleged manipulation of Television Rating Points.
The bench was responding to submissions made by senior advocate Ashok Mundargi, the counsel for Goswami and ARG Outlier Media Pvt Ltd.
The Maharashtra government's statement made earlier this month to refrain from taking any coercive action against Goswami and the ARG Outlier Media's employees will continue till then.
