News on Bangabandhu satellite missing a rumour

Published on: 9:56 pm - Wednesday | November 21, 2018


The rumour identification and prevention cell of the government today ruled out the news of the disappearance of ‘Bangabandhu-1 satellite’, saying that it was a rumour.

The special cell set up in the Ministry of Information said the news published in social media and online news portals on ‘Bangabandhu-1 satellite missing’ was a rumour and urged people not to be misguided.

French manufacturing company Thales Alenia Space has already handed over the control of the Bangabandhu-1 Satellite to Bangladesh and Bangladesh Television (BTV) is broadcasting programmes every day by using the frequency of this satellite, a handout said.

The special cell set up in September has identified the fake news for the first time. (BSS)
