Bangladesh Bank cyber heist: CID gets 67th date to submit probe report
A Dhaka court has again asked Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to submit probe report by November 16 this year in Bangladesh Bank cyber heist case.
Metropolitan Magistrate Md Arafatul Rakib passed the order after Raihan Uddin Khan, additional superintendent of police and also investigation officer of the case, failed to submit the probe report by today (October 2, 2022).
With today, CID has taken 67 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 the 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.
