Turkish police tortured students who were taken into custody during the bloody events of December 3rd. Students who wanted to stage a protest against the AKP government were attacked by the police before even being able to start their demonstration. The scene quickly turned into a war zone: police beat the students with metal batons, sprayed them with pepper gas and took dozens of them into custody. Below are pictures of one student, before being taken into custody and after being released from custody. Students who were later released said that they were verbally abused and roughed up when they were being held by the police.
A 19 year old female student, to be identified only by her initials O.E., was forced into miscarriage after being constantly hit in her stomach. According to eyewitness reports, she pleaded with the police officers to stop hitting her saying that she was pregnant, but they did not stop. The picture below depicts her being trampled upon by several deputies.
