The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Court of Dhaka yesterday fixed March 31for submission of the probe report in the case filed over Bangladesh Bank (BB) reserve heist that took place in 2016. Magistrate Sadbir Yasir Ahsan Chowdhury of the CMM Court fixed the new date as the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) did not submit the report on Wednesday.
With this, the time for submission of the probe report has been extended 47 times.
Hackers stole $101million from Bangladesh Bank'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, 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, after which CID took over the investigation.
