At least 25 people were detained in 8 provinces as part of an Aksaray-based investigation into the Gülen movement, which the government accuses of masterminding the July 15, 2016 coup attempt, on Thursday.
Aksaray Public Prosecutor’s Office issued detention warrants for 36 people suspected of Gülen links.
Police in Aksaray, Ağrı, Ankara, Gaziantep, Kütahya, Mersin, Hatay and Trabzon provinces carried out simultaneous operations against what the state-run Anadolu agency said, the “safe homes” where the suspects have been reportedly hiding at, fearing the post-coup government crackdown.
25 people were rounded up while police continue trying to locate the remaining 11, according to media.
Turkish government has already detained more than 120,000 over links to the movement while some 55,000 were put in pre-trial arrest since last summer.
Gülen movement denies involvement in the failed coup.
