A Dhaka court has fixed November 16 to submit a probe report in the case filed over Bangladesh Bank (BB) reserve heist took place in 2016.

Dhaka Metropolitan Magistrate Arafatul Rakib set the date on Sunday morning as the investigation agency CID failed to place the report.

In February 2016, hackers stole $101m from BB's accounts with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. 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.

Bangladesh Bank Deputy Director (accounts and budgeting) Zobayer Bin Huda filed the case with Motijheel Police Station on March 15, 2016.

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is now probing the case.
