ANKARA (AA) - The arrest of former PYD/PKK co-leader Salih Muslim in Prague came after Turkey called on Czech authorities to arrest him after media reports said he would attend a meeting in the capital, Turkish security officials said on Sunday.

According to the information obtained by Anadolu Agency, Turkish officials of the Directorate General of Security's Interpol department called on Czech authorities to arrest Muslim over the media reports, which said he has attended a meeting in Brussels and would attend a similar event in Prague.

Following Turkey’s demand, Czech security forces arrested Muslim on Sunday at 2.35 a.m. Turkish time (2335GMT Saturday).

Later, they informed Turkey about the arrest of the former terror group leader, said the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media

Turkish officials from Directorate General of Security's Interpol department and the Ministry of Justice have begun the administrative process for the extradition of Muslim.

Pursuant to the verdict of Ankara’s 4th Heavy Penal Court, Muslim is sought over the charges of disrupting the unity and territorial integrity of the state, homicide, attempted homicide, damaging public property and transfering a hazardous substance.
