According to the commission's primary investigation, Khandker Enayet Ullah amassed illegal wealth under his name as well as his family members

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) on Monday issued a notice seeking the asset statements of Dhaka Road Transport Owners Association's General Secretary Khandaker Enayet Ullah, also the vice president of Dhaka South unit of the Awami League, for allegedly amassing illegal wealth through extortion.

The national anti-graft watchdog also sought the wealth statement of Faruk Hasan, former sales assistant of Titas Gas Transmission and Distribution Company Limited and former general secretary of CBA.

ACC Deputy Director (Public Relations Officer) Muhammad Arif Sadeq confirmed to Dhaka Tribune that the commission sent the notices signed by ACC Director Syed Iqbal Hossain.

Both were asked to submit their wealth statement within the next 21 working days.

If they fail to submit their wealth statement on due time or give false wealth information, the commission will take action under Section 27, the commission warned in the letter. 

On February 10, 2020, the commission launched an inquiry against transport leader Khandaker Enayet Ullah, who was accused of extorting Tk1.65 crore a day from the 15,000 buses operating in Dhaka and its surrounding areas. 

After primary investigation, the commission found that Enayet Ullah amassed illegal wealth under his name as well as his family members. 

On October 1, 2019, former leader of Road Transport Owners' Association Ismail Hossain Bachchu accused Enayet of extorting huge sums of money from buses operating in Dhaka and adjacent areas every day, at a press briefing under the banner of Bangladesh Road Transport Owner-Worker Unity.
