Some social apps may temporarily be restricted


Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday hinted at temporary regulation of the internet in the coming days, in particular some communication apps like Viber, to allow police and detectives to trace the militants and their activities.She gave the hint while speaking at a press conference held at her official residence Ganabhaban, arranged to brief the media about the outcome of her just-concluded three-day visit to the Netherlands.

Sheikh Hasina said that there are some bad side-effects of having digitized Bangladesh, to go with the overwhelming good impacts. She said that the country now has the 3G internet connection and 4G connection will come soon.

“The militants are doing their activities using the internet and some apps. If these activities are going on using the internet then the government might think to snap these for some time to nab the militants,” she said.
