Now it is reported that one of Altyntash's accomplices was taken into custody. RIA News with reference to the Turkish media publishes the initials of the offender: V.K.A.
In Turkish news issues claim that this person is allegedly a member of an organization headed by preacher Fethullah Gulen. He was previously dismissed from public service.
It is known that the same person was delayed earlier (on suspicion of participating in a coup attempt), but was then released for lack of evidence.
Based on these data, it is quite possible to assume that in this case the Turkish authorities are solving their problems, stating that an unnamed V.K.A. is an accomplice of the killer Andrei Karlov. In opposition Turkish circles, it is noted that in this way Ankara can jail a person suspected of having links with the so-called “Gulenists”, and accusations of involvement in the murder of the Russian ambassador are a pretext.
