Bangladesh Bank heist: Report delayed again
The submission of the investigation report on the digital heist of the central bank’s reserve has been deferred yet again. The Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court has fixed April 1 as the new date after the investigation officer failed to file the report on Wednesday. Hackers pulled off one of the biggest cyber heists in history when they stole $81 million from Bangladesh Bank’s account with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in February 2016. Bangladesh Bank’s Accounts and Budgeting Division Joint Director Jubaer Bin Huda filed a case with Motijheel police on March 15 that year over the heist. The court had ordered CID to investigate the case and file a report.   This article was first published on banglatribune.com
