Kurdistani Murat Araç was detained on a road check point in Antalya, and the police claimed he committed suicide in custody. There is suspicion that the 24 years old young man was executed.

The police claims that 24-year-old M.A. who was detained on a road check point in Antalya’s Gazipaşa district committed suicide by jumping out of a 3rd floor window of the District Security Directorate.

The Güney Outpost units under the Gazipaşa District Gendarmerie Command stopped a passenger bus coming from Kurdistan at a road check point and M.A. was detained after the ID checks.

M.A. was referred to court after processing in the gendarmerie, and then gave a deposition in the prosecutor’s office. Later, he was turned over to Alanya Security Directorate Anti-terror Unit Police. M.A. was taken to the Gazipaşa District Security Directorate from the court house and the police claims that he jumped out of a window on the third floor at 18.00 yesterday.

M.A.’s body has been taken to the Antalya Forensic Medicine Institution for an autopsy.

The Turkish state has a long history of executions in police stations, and there is suspicion that M.A. was also executed and the death was made to look like a suicide.
