DREAM OF THE MARTYR POLICE EXPLAINED TO HIS PARENTS
His colleagues from Diyarbakır paid a visit to his family and expressed their condolences. They also told them about his dream house which he had shared with his friends before he died.

A CAMPAIGN TO BE STARTED
His colleagues said they accepted his dream as his last will and wanted to start a campaign to finish the house in construction. The parents approved and a campaign would be started to complete the house with no doors and windows with the supports of Diyarbakır Police Department, it is reported.
Mehmet Hanefi Şengül, the father-in-law of the late police officer, came from Elazığ to Fethiye for condolences and said his daughter and grandchildren would stay in Fethiye. Şengül explained his son-in-law worked hard to complete the construction of his house, “After his duty in Ergani, he was going to come and settle here with his family. He was going to finish his house and then live here. He could not finish the construction as his financial situation was not so good. If the house is completed, my daughter can live here as well. They have nowhere else to go.”
