Google rejected my new ionic 3 app

Google has rejected my new ionic 3 app stating that it violates the Malicious Behavior policy because " your app includes a ZIP file which contains ELF files". How would I find out where the zip file exists? I tried doing some searches via command line for zip extensions (.z, .zip, .gz, .tar) and only 2 came up but they seem fine. Anyone else run into this and any pointers on how I can locate the issue?

I figured out it was the previous APK which had issues. We were developing a new app to replace the old one produced by another app maker but did not deactivate the old APK. More than one APK can exist for an app on Google so that people who can’t download the new one because of compatibility issues can download the other APK.
