DHAKA: The High Court (HC) directed the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) to remove intimate and personal photos and videos of actress Rafiat Rashid Mithila and film director Ahmed Fahmi from internet soon.
The HC bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Md Mostafizur Rahman issued the order after hearing on a petition regarding the leaked photos.
Barrister Tasnim Mridu filed a writ petition earlier on Thursday challenging the legality of not removing all the intimate photographs of Mithila and Fahmi from social media and online news portals.
Information technology secretary, home secretary, BTRC officials and other concerned were made respondents in the petition.
