The bodies of a pregnant woman, around 35 years of age, and a young girl, around 10, were allegedly found in different spots on the Evros River, in Turkey’s northwestern Edirne province, the Kronos news website reported on Monday.
The claim has neither been confirmed nor denied by the Turkish authorities.
According to the Politurco news portal, residents of Eski village first discovered the body of the little girl and immediately notified local law enforcement, which could not find any identity card near the body.
The other body surfaced on a small island in the river, near the village of Gemici.
According to a Greek newspaper, 30 Turkish citizens a day have been fleeing to Greece since the announcement of snap elections in Turkey on June 24.
Thousands of people have fled Turkey due to a massive witch-hunt launched by the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) government against sympathizers of the Gülen movement in the wake of a failed coup attempt on July 15. The government accuses the movement of masterminding the coup while the latter denies involvement.
More than 150,000 people have been detained and some 80,000 including academics, judges, doctors, teachers, lawyers, students, policemen and many from different backgrounds have been put in pre-trial detention since last summer.
Many tried to escape Turkey via illegal ways as the government cancelled their passports like thousands of others.
On Feb 13, at least three people died and five others were missing after a boat carrying a group of eight capsized in the Evros River while seeking to escape a post-coup crackdown in Turkey.
