Unregistered news portals will be shut down in phases, said Information and Broadcasting Minister Hasan Mahmud. 

The minister told journalists while unveiling the book on the ‘Life of the Prime Minister’ at the meeting room of the Information Ministry on Thursday afternoon.

Responding to a question that a few days ago BTRC shut down many online news portals, including the state-run news agency BSS,  Hasan said, “It was a misunderstanding and that has been resolved quickly. We will send the list of the unregistered news portals within a day or two and the BTRC will take action against those.”
