- Ibrahim Gul, 28, was said to have died before a routine hair operation in Turkey

The body of a man who mysteriously died of an alleged heart attack during a hair transplant operation in Turkey has been found covered in blood in a morgue.
Ibrahim Gul, 28, was found by a friend wrapped in a blood socked shroud in an Istanbul morgue after his wife received a call saying he had died before a routine hair transplant surgery on Saturday.
Doctors told Gul’s wife he suffered a heart attack before the operation, forcing medics to perform an angiography and put in a stent.
Police are treating the death as suspicious as both procedures are considered minimally invasive and have arrested the doctor in charge of the operation.
Gul, his wife and child had recently moved to Italy, where he set up a barbershop.

Gul had travelled to Istanbul on Thursday to purchase barbershop supplies and decided to get hair transplant surgery at the same time. He was expected to return to his wife and child days later.
He went to the Medicine Hospital in the Istanbul district of Bagcilar for the operation on Saturday, local media reported.
But hours later, Guls’ wife, who has not been named, got a call from the hospital saying her husband had died of a heart attack.
She said she found it hard to believe, and asked a friend of her husband’s who he had previously worked for while he was training as a barber to confirm what had happened.
The friend, Dilek Ozbek, was allowed to see the body in the morgue, where he found it covered in blood.
Dilek Ozbek said: ‘Ibrahim’s wife called me on Saturday at around 5pm. She said that Ibrahim had suffered a heart attack and asked me to go to the hospital to see him.
‘I went to see him in the morgue where I found his body wrapped in a shroud [a traditional burial sheet] soaked in blood.
‘The hospital said it was a heart attack but that’s clearly not true. There was blood everywhere.’
Ahmet Yigit, Ibrahim’s uncle, said: ‘The hospital told us he had a heart attack. They said they did angiography and put in a stent.
‘Whether they performed heart surgery or transplanted hair, nothing is certain. He was a young healthy man.’
Istanbul Police have opened an investigation into Gul’s death and have confirmed the doctor in charge of the operation, Mehmet Albayrak, had been detained.
Albayrak will remain in custody while the police carry out their investigation.
Local media reports that Albayrak told the police: ‘The patient reported no issue when he arrived for the operation. This situation could not have been foreseen by anyone.’
