Turkish security forces have detained 4,015 suspected putschists in nationwide operations carried out in cell houses since 2016, the state-run Anadolu agency reported Wednesday.

Police units have so far conducted 265 operations in cell houses used by the members of a network accused of orchestrating a coup attempt in 2016, said the report.

According to Anadolu, Fethullah Gulen, U.S based Turkish cleric-cum-head of the network, ordered the members to hide in these cell houses without being exposed.
