The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) on Monday ordered the International Internet Gateway (IIG) to block access to 55 more porn sites, reports UNB.

Emdadul Haque, general secretary of Internet Service Providers' Association of Bangladesh, told UNB that they had carried out the BTRC's directives.

Since February 6, the BTRC had ordered blocking access to more than 2,800 porn sites.

The High Court had directed the government to take initiative to block pornography websites in November 2016. BTRC had blocked about 500 sites at that time.
