“The police investigation aims to reveal the circumstances at the scene and how the death occurred. Due to investigative interests, the police are unable to provide further information on the case at this time,” the announcement also states.

Two were decreed to be held in custody until April 30 and the other two until April 24. All were decreed on grounds of investigative interests and are now under isolation.
