42-year-old Ozen Alkan was detained while she was visiting her husband, already under arrest over his alleged links to the Gulen movement, which the government accuses of masterminding the July 15, 2016 coup attempt, on Monday, June 26.
It was the second day of Muslim festival of Eid-Al-Fitr on Monday.
Ozen took some 900 kilometers along with her two children from Bursa to Osmaniye where her husband, Mehmet Alkan has been held over Gulen ties since early this month.
She was detained during their visit to Mehmet and was taken to the Police’s Organized Crime Department in the neighboring province of Adana. The charges raised against her are still unknown.
A sociology graduate and a 42-year-old mother of two, Ozen worked as a family counselor from 2012 to 2017, media said.
