The family went to Şırnak State Hospital and gave a blood samples for the DNA test on October 5. No information has been given to the family since that day. We were informed that the DNA results have not yet been obtained after the application  we made to the prosecutor's office on Monday.

But they can at least respond to us as to when will the DNA results will be recieved. We will follow the judicial process if the family consents."
