Turkey seeks detention of 171 former university staff over failed coup

Turkish police have detained 54 staff from a university shut down after an attempted coup past year that was blamed on US-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, state-run Anadolu news agency said on Wednesday. It launched investigations against more than 23,000 of them.

The legal status of almost 11,500 mobile phone users, who were "directed" to coup-linked Bylock app, will be reconsidered, prosecutors said Wednesday.

The movement denies involvement in the failed takeover, however almost 130,000 people have been detained and 60,000 arrested over Gulen links so far.

He said an arrest warrant had been issued for the developer of the other app which had re-directed users to ByLock.

FETO and its USA -based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 250 people martyred and almost 2,200 injured. Gulen has denied any involvement. The government says the measures have been necessary due to the security threats which Turkey has faced since the putsch.
