The High Court on Wednesday has directed to remove pornographic parts from web series on the internet within a week.
The High Court bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim passed the order. Advocate Tanvir Ahmed appeared for the writ petition in the court.
The lawyer said that after seeing a report on a Bangladeshi web series on a private TV channel on June 6, a legal notice was sent to the defendants on June 14. “I filed a writ in the public interest on July 12 as the notice did not show any progress,” he added.
Following the writ hearing, the court directed the defendants to remove the unethical and reprehensible illegal content from all OTT platforms within the next week. At the same time, BTRC has been asked to submit a report within one month.
