Detention warrants were issued for another 29 teachers in Kahramanmaraş province who had been earlier dismissed from their positions, as part of an investigation into the Gülen movement, on Tuesday.

While 27 of the suspects have been detained so far, police have yet to locate the remaining two.

Turkey survived a military coup attempt on July 15 that killed over 240 people and wounded more than a thousand others. Immediately after the putsch, the government along with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan pinned the blame on the Gülen movement.

About 130,000 people have been sacked from state bodies, in excess of 91,000 detained and more than 45,000 have been arrested since the coup attempt. Arrestees include journalists, judges, prosecutors, police and military officers, academics, governors and even a comedian.
