The Secretariat issued a notice in this regard on Thursday (Mar 26).

Earlier on Wednesday (Mar 25), the information ministry issued a notice saying that a team of 15 public servants of deputy secretary rank will monitor nearly 30 television channels in a bid to curb rumours.

The new notice, however, said that the previous order has been scrapped and a cell has been formed to monitor and curb any rumour or misinformation circulating on social media and mainstream publications.
