The Turkish police are currently examining the version alleging that the body of Saudi opposition journalist Khashoggi, who disappeared after entering the Saudi Consulate General in Istanbul, might have been dissolved in acid, Sputnik reported quoting the Haberturk TV.
The police first doubted the viability of this version, but then, as the investigation progressed, the Turkish police and security officers have not managed to rule out such a hypothesis, the broadcaster said.
The news comes following the disappearance in Turkey of Jamal Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post on October 2. According to the journalist's fiancee, he was invited to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul but never left the consulat.e building.
In addition, media reports stated that the Turkish investigators believe the journalist was murdered inside the consulate, but Saudi Arabia claims that Khashoggi went missing after he left the building.
