The High Court has issued a full verdict ordering the removal of mobile towers from sensitive places where educational institutions, hospitals, playgrounds, and public gatherings exist.

The verdict was made after the signing of Justice Syed Refaat Ahmed and Justice Md. Iqbal Kabir. On Thursday, writ lawyer Manzil Morshed confirmed the verdict.

Earlier on April 25, the High Court ordered to remove the mobile tower within four months from areas where there are educational institutions, hospitals, playgrounds, and public gatherings. The BTRC has been asked to implement the order. The court issued the verdict because radiation emitted from cellphone company towers is harmful to health.
