TURKEY: Nine-year-old Ceylan Aslan was brutally beaten to death by her father Muslum Aslan after being released from jail in coronavirus amnesty.
Muslum Aslan was serving his prison time after stabbing his wife Rukiye Aslan. He was released from prison last Friday in the governments’ coronavirus amnesty scheme to stop the spread of the virus in the prison.
The incident occurred in the Güzelvadi District of Gaziantep last week. The violent and heartless father has been arrested again after being released from the prison.
The local media reports, Muslu, Aslan was arrested and jailed last year for stabbing his wife Rukiye. He was released to prevent the spread of the virus in the overcrowded Turkey’s prison.
The father went straight to his estranged wife’s home in an attempt to kidnap his three children. A fight broke out in which the nine-year-old was brutally beaten to death by her own father.
She was rushed to the hospital but died due to internal injuries.
