According to the article Biman wants to buy 4 Boeing 787s which was destined for an Indian carrier but they failed to make payments to Boeing.Additionally Bombardier offered Biman 2 more Dash-8s which will be delivered by early 2021,Biman will receive 3 brand new DHC-8-Q400s by the mid 2020s.The carrier is optimistic about resuming NY flights by June or July, they also requested Canada to give them fifth freedom rights to operate flights between Dhaka to Toronto via Manchester.

This has already happened.

Biman has already taken delivery of at least one 787-9.

As for the Indian carrier - it is Vistara, and aren't they scheduled to receive their bird by February? It was already painted and undertaking test flights in Seattle. All of these aircraft were originally ordered by the beleaguered Hainan Airlines of China.

The article was of yesterday,even i was surprised regarding the 787.If i am correct 9W 787s were never built and Vistara is looking for 787 pilots which means they didn't cancel the order.
Also both the 787-9s have been delivered and one of them is doing the MAN inaugural
