A total of 26 academics and university personnel from Eskişehir Osmangazi University (ESOGÜ) have been arrested on coup charges.

Last week police detained 35 university staff members and academics from the university in simultaneous raids. An Eskişehir court arrested 26 of them on Friday while releasing the rest pending trial.

Among the arrestees are 11 professors and nine assistant professors, according to local media outlets.

In addition to numerous arrested academics, a total of 6,337 were purged from their positions by means of decrees issued after an abortive coup on July 15.
