Probe report on BB resrve heist case Dec 23

A court yesterday set December 23 to submit probe report in the case lodged over Bangladesh Bank (BB) reserve heist that took place in 2016.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shorafujjaman Ansari set the new date as the investigation agency CID could not submit the report yesterday.

Hackers stole $101million 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.
