A total of 26 academics and university personnel from Eskişehir Anadolu University (AU) were arrested over coup charges, bringing up the already high-number of arrested faculty members jailed over their alleged ties to the July 15 failed coup bid.

Last week, police detained 35 university staff and academics from AU in simultaneous raids. An Eskişehir court arrested 26 of them on Friday, while releasing the rest on pending trial.

Among the arrestees are 11 professors, 9 assistant professors, according to local media outlets.
