A Dhaka court on Wednesday set May 21 to submit probe report in the case lodged over Bangladesh Bank (BB) reserve heist that took place in 2016, reports BSS.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Sadbir Yasir Ahsan Chowdhury set the date as the investigation agency CID could not submit the report on the day.

Hackers stole $101m from BB’s accounts with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in February 2016. Of the amount, $81 million was transferred to four accounts with RCBC in Manila and another $20 million to a bank in Sri Lanka.

But the transfer of $20 million to Sri Lanka failed because of a spelling error by the hackers. Later, the BB was able to retrieve about $15 million from the Philippines.
