Dec 03, Colombo: Opposition leader of the Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) and former United National Party (UNP) Minister Mohamed Maharoof has passed away at a private hospital in Colombo this morning.

The ruling party member of the CMC had suffered a heart attack this morning and died after he was admitted to a private hospital, local media reported.

Maharoof joined the ruling United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) last year ahead of the election for the CMC. He was a former United National Party (UNP) stalwart and vied for the mayoral candidacy of the CMC under UNP ticket.
