The High Court on Tuesday ordered the government to shut down all unregistered and unauthorised online news portals within a week.
Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) and the Press Information Department (PID) have been asked to comply with the order.
The High Court bench of Justice Md Mozibur Rahman Miah and Justice Md Kamrul Hossain Mollah passed the order after holding hearing on a writ petition filed in this regard.
Supreme Court lawyers Rashida Chowdhury Nilu and Zaren Rahman filed the writ petition recently.
Following their writ petition the High Court bench on August 16 this year issued a ruling and on Tuesday (yesterday) asked the authorities to shut down all unregistered and unauthorised online news portals within one week.
