Bangladesh central bank chief resigns over massive cyber heist

Bangladesh’s central bank governor Atiur Rahman resigned on Tuesday following demands of accountability from the government after $81-million was stolen from the bank’s U.S. account in one of the largest cyber heists ever.

Rahman, who returned to Dhaka late on Monday after attending a weekend International Monetary Fund conference in New Delhi, told Reuters that Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina had accepted his resignation.
