Turkish police spoon-feed disabled Iraqi for four days before finding his brother
An Iraqi citizen with Down’s syndrome has been looked after for four days by Istanbul police before his brother was found.
Talip Al Qaysi was found by police in Istanbul’s Beyoğlu district on July 4 while crying in the street alone. The disabled man, who could not speak, was taken to a police car where his fingerprints were taken for identification, but no results were produced.
Police started to search the missing people databases throughout Turkey. In the following four days, Al Qaysi was cared in Haliç Police Center in Beyoğlu and even spoon-fed by an officer.
Finally, it was revealed that the man’s brother, Abdullah Hasaballah Salman Al Qaysi, applied to another police center in the Fatih district to report that his brother was missing.
Local media reported on July 31 that the two brothers met at the police center. After the emotional meeting, the elder brother thanked the police and presented a Quran as a gift.
