The complete probe report of the $101 million heist from Bangladesh Bank will be made public by September 24, Finance Minister AMA Muhith said today.

The minister said this during a meeting with a delegation of Bangladesh Women Chamber of Commerce and Industries at Secretariat.

Hackers stole US$101 million from the BB account with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York on February 4. Of the amount, $20 million went to a bank in Sri Lanka and the money has been recovered, according to the central bank.

Unidentified hackers stole the money from the Bangladesh Bank's account at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and funneled it through a Manila branch of the Rizal Commercial Banking Corp to casinos and gambling agents in the Philippines.
