An indictment has been drawn up for Abdullah Çakıroğlu who kicked Ayşegül Terzi on a bus for wearing shorts on the first day of Eid.
In the indictment prepared by Anadolu Public Chief Executor Sadettin Ulusoy, Çakıroğlu is being charged with “inciting people to hatred and hostility” as well as “humiliation and defamation” demanding from 2 years and 3 months to 8 years in prison.
What had happened?
Terzi was attacked by a man named Abdullah Çakıroğlu on a bus on the first day of Eid. After the attack was reported in the media, Çakıroğlu was detained on charge of "wounding".
In his first testimony, Çakıroğlu said: "The shorts she wore were not appropriate. That's why I got angry and made that move".
"I undergo psychological treatment. I involuntarily kicked in an instant", said the aggressor. In response to journalists' questions, he said: "Everything is under control...There is no problem...I was attacked by vandals. 20 leftist terrorists attacked me. Everything happened in accordance with Islamic law".
Çakıroğlu was then sent to the prosecutor's office on the charge of "wounding," and the prosecutor released him on the grounds that such a crime did not necessitate an arrest.
When his release sparked public reactions, the prosecution issued a detention warrant again. Çakıroğlu was detained on the charge of "inciting people to grudge and hostility". Çakıroğlu then was sent to the Criminal Judgeship of Peace on Duty for arrest and has been arrested. (EA/DG)
