The Dutch stunned Bangladesh to register their second win of the tournament, having pulled off an upset against South Africa earlier in the tournament.
Bangladesh had the Netherlands in trouble at 63-4 but paid the price for dropping skipper Scott Edwards twice in three balls when he was yet ti open his account.
Edwards went on to finish as top scorer with 68.
Bangladesh are ninth in the 10-team table with games remaining against Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia.
Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan said his team's 87-run loss to the Netherlands in Kolkata was their worst-ever World Cup performance.
