The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has been asked again by a Dhaka court to submit its report by March 13 on a case filed over the incident of cyber heist of $101 million from Bangladesh Bank's account in 2016.
Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Shadbir Yasir Ahsan Chowdhury passed the order after CID's additional superintendent Md Raihan Uddin Khan and also the investigation officer of the case, failed to submit the probe report on Sunday, reports UNB.
International robbers stole $101 million from the Bangladesh Bank account with the Federal Reserve Bank through fraudulent instructions against their target of about $1 billion in February 2016.
Although, some $20 million was recovered from a Sri Lankan bank, $81 million, which landed in Manila-based RCBC, could not be recovered.
Most of the money transferred to the Philippines went to four personal accounts, held by individuals.
Bangladesh has so far recovered around $18 million of the $81 million transferred to the Philippines. It was later suspected that Dridex malware was used for the attack.
