Hackers stole $101 million from Bangladesh Bank's accounts with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in February 2016.
Of the amount, $81 million was transferred to four accounts with the Rizal Commercial Banking Corp in Manila, the Philippines, and another $20 million to a bank in Sri Lanka.
However, the transfer of $20 million to Sri Lanka failed because of a spelling error by the hackers.
Later, the Bangladesh Bank 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.
