He had been undergoing treatment at the hospital since October 18.
The leftist politician had suffered a brain stroke last year and became ill since then.

Hailing from Boalkhali upazila, Badal left his wife, three sons and a daughter to mourn his death.

Badal, who was involved with Chhatra League in his student days, actively took part in the Liberation War. He was one of the key persons who tried to prevent offloading of firearms at Chattogram port during the war.
