Ibrahim Eski, a 31-year-old police officer who was suspended from his job due to his alleged links to the Gülen movement, committed suicide on Tuesday.
Failed to hear from the father of two for a while, Eski’s relatives broke into his home in Sakarya where they found his hanged body.
According to media, Eski was supposed to be reinstated to his job in early October, this year.
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 Justice and Development Party (AK Party) government along with President Erdoğan pinned the blame on the Gülen movement.
The movement denies involvement.
The government has detained more than 126,000 people including teachers, state workers, academics, judges, prosecutors, judges, businessmen, lawyers and many others from different backgrounds over alleged or real links to the movement since the summer of 2016.
Nearly 40 people who or whose relatives have been affected by the post-coup purge, either by losing their jobs or by being arrested, due to their alleged links to the movement, have committed suicide so far.
