29-year-old Kutahya man, identified as H.T. who had had an arrest warrant issue against him over Gulen links, was caught using fake ID to survive Turkey’s post-coup witch hunt against the movement.
The government accuses the Gulen movement of masterminding the July 15, 2016 coup attempt and has detained more than 120,000 people over alleged or real links to the movement so far.
H.T. was taken into custody after a Kutahya police found out that he was being wanted in an Afyon-based investigation into the movement, during a regular surveillance for public safety.
State-run Anadolu news agency said police found a counterfeit ID on him and seized it.
H.T. is accused of using ByLock, a mobile app Turkish government claim to be top communication tool among Gulen followers.
