Turkey Detains Over 400 In Crime Crackdown

Over 400 suspects out of 502 wanted by authorities in connection with organised crime have been detained following a nationwide operation on Tuesday

Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu revealed the details of “Operation Roller” in the early hours at a press conference as police raided several locations simultaneously in 50 provinces.

Soylu announced that police arrested 842 people in 211 separate operations against organized crime since January, with 2,703 detained.

The operation was among the biggest in recent years against organized crime gangs across the country.

In the past two years, Turkish police launched a new wave of operations against organised crime networks and entirely eliminated 66 of them, whose members were rounded up in nationwide operations.
