BB Heist Probe: CID fails 56th report deadline
A Dhaka court yesterday again asked Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to submit probe report by March 13 in Bangladesh Bank cyber heist case.
Metropolitan Magistrate Sadbir Yasir Ahsan Chowdhury passed the order after Raihan Uddin Khan, assistant superintendent of CID and investigation officer of the case, failed to submit the probe report yesterday. With this, CID has taken 57 dates to complete its probe in the heist of $101 million from the central bank's account with Federal Reserve Bank of New York in February 2016.
At least $81 million was transferred to accounts in Manila-based RCBC, from where it disappeared into the casinos of Philippines.
On March 2016, Bangladesh Bank filed the case with Motijheel Police Station.
So far, Bangladesh retrieved $15 million from RCBC and recovered another $20 million sent to a bank in Sri Lanka. On February 1 this year, Bangladesh Bank sued Rizal Bank in US court to recover $66m of stolen funds.
