RASC News Agency: According to reports from Turkish media, the police of this country recently reported that they have arrested two individuals in connection with the burning of the body of an Afghanistani migrant in Turkey.
Turkish media reported yesterday, November 13th, that the body of an Afghanistani migrant, who had lost his life while working inside a coal mine in the city of Zonguldak, Turkey, was transferred by his employer to a forest and set on fire.
Based on the published reports, Turkish police forces, including six suspects implicated in the murder of this Afghanistani migrant in Turkey, have arrested two of them who are the owners of the mine on charges of intentional homicide. Reports indicate that the deceased was named Wazir Mohammad, a 50-year-old father of three, who worked in an illegal coal mine and was found by passersby in a forest in the city of Zonguldak, Turkey on November 9th.
According to Turkish police statements, the detained individuals have confessed during interrogation that Wazir Mohammad became ill at his workplace and weakened, and they set him on fire to cover up the incident. Based on the information, initial investigations by the police of this city suggest that this Afghanistani migrant was set on fire with gasoline.
Meanwhile, Afghanistan is among the countries in the world where due to existing economic, social, and political crises, a larger number of its people have migrated to neighboring regional and global countries. According to reports, Afghanistani migrants outside Afghanistan also face numerous challenges and are deprived of access to proper living facilities.
