He said investigation into the incident is still ongoing as forensic experts will carry an autopsy on the fetus including the fetus blood, urine and tissue samples which were sent to Turkey to determine the exact cause of death.   

The suspects who expressed their regrets and accepted the accusations against them, demanded appropriate bail conditions from the court according to the facts.    

The judge, who meticulously evaluated the issue before him, seized the passports and travel documents of both suspects.   

The judge in a verdict sent the suspect's friend to prison for a period not more than 1 month under any circumstances, and released the suspect on bail with a cash deposit of 3 thousand TL.
