Cyber security expert Tanvir Hasan Zoha, who went missing since March 16, found in the capital on Wednesday morning.

Tanvir's uncle Mahbubul Alam said, he came to house early today. Law enforcers found him at airport area around 2am and later they dropped him at his Kalabagan residence.

Family members claimed that Tanvir was abducted in the wee hours of March 17 on his way to home. adds, however, none of the security and intelligence agencies admitted to picking up Zoha, who had identified himself as a cyber security specialist for the ICT Division while speaking to media on the $81 million Bangladesh Bank cyber heist.

But as the government body soon denied any links with him, Zoha said he used to work at the ICT Division.

The transfer of $81 million from the Bangladesh Bank account with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to the Philippines by hackers drew international media attention after Philippines’ Daily Inquirer broke the news on Feb 29.

Bangladesh Bank officials learnt of the heist, which took place in the first week of February, almost immediately but withheld the information for about a month.
