İstanbul, Mar 27 (DHA) – Two police officers were dismissed from their duties over the killing of a student at the Nevruz celebrations in the southeastern province of Diyarbakır, the Diyarbakır Governor’s Office said on Saturday.
The 23-year-old university student, Kemal Kurkut, was shot by police on Tuesday during the Nevruz celebrations in the Bağlar district after he reportedly attempted to enter the festival area with a knife and a backpack. Kurkut later succumbed to his injuries in hospital.
The Diyarbakır Governor’s Office said in a statement that an investigation into the incident was ongoing and it also demanded an inspector be assigned from the Interior Ministry for the administrative investigation.
It also stated that two police officers were dismissed from their duties in connection with the killing of Kurkut.
One of the police officers had been released after testifying to the prosecutor, while the other was released on probation by the court following an arrest warrant on charges of “homicide with eventual intent.”
The Diyarbakır Court of Peace Magistracy also imposed a media ban on reporting the incident upon the application of the Diyarbakır Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office.
