"We will work by coordinating with all investigating agencies," ACC Secretary Dr Md Anwar Hossain Hawlader told reporters during a press briefing on Thursday.

A team led by ACC Assistant Director Mamunur Rashid Chowdhury and Deputy Assistant Director Muhammad Shihab Salam is in charge of the investigation.

The documents that have reached the ACC so far include: tax files of the company, its chairman Shamima Nasreen and of Managing Director Mohammad Rassel; the latest two-year audit reports; Evaly's list of registered merchants; a list of pending orders; records of bank account transactions; and a list of the top 10 merchants with the most transactions with Evaly.

Earlier, in an inspection report submitted by the central bank to the Commerce Ministry, the Bangladesh Bank had said Evaly's total liability stood at Tk407.18 crore.

However, according to a statement submitted to the commerce ministry by Evaly, the total liabilities of the e-commerce platform amounted to Tk543 crore as of July 15 with an additional debt of Tk1 crore for shareholder equity.

Following the central bank report, the ministry sent separate letters to the Home Ministry, the ACC, the Directorate of National Consumer Rights Protection, and the Bangladesh Competition Commission to take legal action against Evaly.

ACC launched an inquiry into Evaly on July 8.
