Twenty-eight-year-old S.A.K. was detained on Thursday while visiting her husband, under arrest over alleged links to the faith-based Gülen movement, which the government accuses of masterminding a July 15, 2016 coup attempt.
According to the Kronos news website, the woman went to Osmaniye Prison to visit her husband M.K., who has been held in pretrial detention since early August 2016. When she entered the prison, she was detained by security guards as part of an investigation launched by the Konya 2nd High Criminal Court.
The woman was detained on suspicion of membership in the Gülen movement.
In a currently ongoing government crackdown on alleged and real members of the movement, dozens of women have been detained while visiting their imprisoned husbands in past months, with their children either separated from them and given to family members or taken to jail with the mothers.
