Staff Correspondent: A Dhaka court has ordered Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Bangladesh Police to submit the investigation report of a case filed over Bangladesh Bank reserve heist on August 29.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate AKM Moin Uddin Siddique fixed the new date on Thursday after CID failed to submit the report on the day.

The case was filed on March 15 with Motijheel Police Station under prevention act and Information and Communication Technology Act. BB joint director (accounts and budget) Jubayer Bin Huda filed the case against unidentified persons. The case was shifted to CID in the following day for investigation.

Earlier on February 5, unknown cyber criminals tried to steal nearly $1 billion from the Bangladesh Bank, one of the biggest bank frauds ever.

They succeeded in transferring some $81 million via an account at the New York Federal Reserve to four accounts in fake names at a branch of Rizal Commercial Banking Corp (RCBC) in Manila of Philippines. Most of the money was laundered through casinos in Manila and remains missing.
