Security analyst Murat Aslan said, “The area where the attack took place is a crowded area. Extreme care is taken here. Police remain on alert in this area. If you have a bag in your hand in this area that looks suspicious, the police can stop you. But if you look straight, no one will stop you. This is because it is a public place and the police do not stop everyone. Security cameras are plentiful in this area. I think through them leads will be found.’
