A total of 50 soldiers and three other people were remanded into custody for suspected links to Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind the 2016 defeated deadly coup in Turkey, according to judicial sources on Tuesday, Anadolu Agency reported.


Prosecutors in Ankara remanded 50 active-duty gendarmerie personnel and three so-called "covert imams" into custody for periodically and successively communicating with other FETO members via pay phones, chief public prosecutor’s office in Ankara said in a statement.

In another operation based in central Konya province, chief public prosecutor’s office issued an arrest warrant for 53 active soldiers due to their suspected links to the so-called 'covert imams' of FETO terror group.

FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup on July 15, 2016, which left 251 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

Ankara also accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.
