Bangladesh Bank cyber heist: CID fails to file probe report for 65th time
A Dhaka court today again asked Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to submit probe report by October 2, 2022 in Bangladesh Bank cyber heist case.
Metropolitan Magistrate Md Arafatul Rakib passed the order after Raihan Uddin Khan, additional superintendent of police and investigation officer of the case, failed to submit the probe report by today.
With today, CID has taken 66 dates to complete its probe in the case filed over the heist of $101 million from Bangladesh 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.
Bangladesh Bank deputy director (accounts and budgeting) Zobayer Bin Huda filed the case with Motijheel Police Station on March 15, 2016.
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.
