Bassist Ibrahim Gokcek died on Thursday at a hospital in Istanbul ’ s Beylikduzu district , lawyer Gorgun Danaci said .

He said lawyers found out about Gokcek ’ s death during a trial in which Gokcek was accused of alleged terror links .

Turkey considers music band Grup Yorum as being linked to the far- left Revolutionary People ’ s Liberation Party – Front (DHKP – C) , which Ankara labels as a terrorist organisation .

There was no clear evidence against Gokcek except for statements from “ secret witnesses , ” his lawyer added .

Gokcek had started his strike in prison and was only released on the 290 th day .

Gokcek ended his hunger strike on Tuesday after 323 days .

He was one of two Grup Yorum members on hunger strike , demanding the government end targeting of the group , lift the ban on their concerts and release the two remaining jailed members .

Singer Helin Bolek died in April after being on a hunger strike for 288 days .

An Istanbul prosecutor demanded up to 15 years in jail for the band members in November over their alleged DHKP – C membership , state news agency Anadolu reported .
