A Dhaka court has set December 23 for submission of a probe report in a case filed over the Bangladesh Bank (BB) reserve heist that took place in 2016.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Sarafuzzaman Ansari fixed the date as the investigation agency Criminal Investigation Department could not submit the report on Wednesday.
Hackers stole $101 million from BB's accounts with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in February, 2016. Of the amount, $81 million was transferred to four accounts with RCBC in Manila and another $20 million to a bank in Sri Lanka.
However, the transfer of $20 million to Sri Lanka failed because of a spelling error by the hackers. Later, the Bangladesh Bank was able to retrieve about $15 million from the Philippines.
Bangladesh Bank Deputy Director (accounts and budgeting) Zobayer Bin Huda filed the case with Motijheel Police Station on March 15, 2016.
