The murder of the 10-year-old child took place while Eyup Kurta’s uncle was hanging onto the vehicle, trying to stop it, but the soldiers ignored the 10-year-old Ayub and his uncle’s shoutin, and subsequently dragged his uncle to the gendarmerie.
As a result of this tragic incident, Eyup died in the hospital and his uncle was also seriously injured.
