ÇANKIRI - Doğan News Agency
Hürriyet PhotoReports of a motorcycle accident in Turkey’s Çankırı attracted media attention a day after police forces discovered a fake intelligence agency identity card, over 80,000 euros and a Kalashnikov rifle on the driver.
The 32-year-old driver crashed into a car around Kurşunlu on July 16 and died on the scene but surprising details later emerged when security forces arrived at the site.
The driver, identified as Y.S., was found in possession of an identity card of the Turkish National Intelligence Agency (MİT), over 80,000 euros in cash and a long-range Kalashnikov rifle. He was on his way to Istanbul when the accident occurred.
Initial reports claimed the driver was an intelligence officer, assuming the found ID to be real. The ID card, however, was later on reported to be fake, and the agency said the person in question had no relation to the organization.
The driver’s body was turned over to his relatives and taken to his hometown of Adapazari.
The investigation continues under secrecy, according to Doğan news agency, and no further details regarding the cash or the weapon have been revealed.
