HDP leader Demirtaş's car hit by solid object not bullet

A solid object hit the car of Selehattin Demirtaş, leader of pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party on Saturday causing damage to the car's window.

A spokesman for the party initially said that the car was targeted by a gunshot. The rear window of Demirtas's bullet-proof vehicle was hit by a bullet as it was driving in the southeastern Diyarbakır province, according to the spokesman.

In a statement, Demirtaş said that he did not hear the shooting sound, adding that the car was taken to the crime laboratory of the Diyarbakır Police Department for inspection and no bullet traces were found on the armored vehicle.

The Diyarbakır governorate said in a statement on Monday that no bullet was found at the crime scene and that the 3x3 cm damage on the right side of the window was likely caused by a solid object according to the initial investigation.
