Court seeks probe report on reserve heist case on February 17

A Dhaka court has asked Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of police to submit a probe report in the case lodged over Bangladesh Bank reserve heist on February 17.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Sadbir Yasir Ahsan Chowdhury set the date as the investigation agency CID failed to present the report on Wednesday, reports BSS.

Hackers stole $101m 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.

But the transfer of $20 million to Sri Lanka failed because of a spelling error by the hackers. Later, the BB 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.
