We are looking into it legally and we want to settle this matter quickly. It is not in direct contact with the betting site but it is definitely linked to it. This is a news portal but betting is related to it, we have to see the legal side. The rules here do not allow betting. So legally we have to see it.”
What do you think Shakib
