A Jamaat-e-Islami leader in Khulna died on Sunday, 15 days after he was arrested in a subversion case.

Akramuzzaman Raja Mia was the ameer of Jamaat’s Labanchara thana unit and hailed from Faridpur’s Alfadanga upazila.

The 62-year-old was taken to Khulna Medical College Hospital from Khulna district jail after he fell ill at night.
