New Delhi: ABP News ranked Number 1 among all TV news channels in the country on the day convict Gurmeet Ram Rahim was sentenced to 20 years in jail for raping two women in his Dera ashram in Haryana.

It was indeed, a sincere hard work of the entire ABP News network that it maintained the number one position throughout the day on August 28.
