Six students from Aydın Anadolu İmam Hatip High School were released on Monday following a brief detention over dancing to Kurdish music.
According Doğan news agency, 14-year-old Y.B. and his five friends were detained after the school administration submitted a complaint against the students for dancing to Kurdish music during the class.
Their teacher in the classroom took the music player and handed it over to school administration and complained about the students to a public prosecutor. Following the complaint, six students were briefly detained by police and referred to a court over charges of “terror propaganda.”
The court released students pending trial.
