Torab Ali, who was acquitted by the High Court in BDR mutiny case, died at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) early Friday.
The former ward-level leader of Dhaka City Awami League breathed his last at Coronary Care Unit (CCU) around 6 am, said Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Babul Miah of DMCH police outpost.
He was taken to the hospital from Dhaka Central Jail on January 3 as he fell ill, the police official added.

Torab Ali was also a former officer of BDR.
