The commission has gathered information from various sources including the Bangladesh Financial Intelligence Unit's report (BFIU).

The ACC probe team discovered that the SBAC chairman embezzled in the name of a non-existent institution, Khulna Builders Limited, as well as in the names of bank employees.

BFIU reported that SBAC chairman also embezzled government money during his tenure by misusing power.

On March 11, the BFIU requested the bank to freeze the accounts of Hossain, his wife Begum Sufia Amjad, and their daughter Tajori for 30 days, even though Hossain owns 3.21% share of the bank.

Previously, on January 7, the commission put a restriction on the family barring them from traveling overseas.
