Turkish police detained five police officers in five provinces Tuesday as part of the "parallel state" probe.
The five suspects, including a former head of intelligence in the western Manisa province, were detained in a morning operation that was simultaneously carried out in Manisa, Afyonkarahisar, Kastamonu, Konya and Ankara provinces.
The suspects are accused of "wiretapping conversations, official misconduct, forgery, slander, breach of privacy, and illegal acquisition and storage of personal data".
The "parallel state" refers to an organization purportedly led by Fetullah Gülen, who lives in self-imposed exiled in the U.S. and is accused of plotting to overthrow the Turkish government by infiltrating state institutions, including the police and judiciary.
A Turkish Court on Monday has issued arrest warrant for Fethullah Gülen and Emre Uslu in absentia and former police chief Yurt Atayün over Selam-Tevhid terror case.
