Istanbul, June 2013
Arif Dallı (11), was watching the fireworks with his family from the balcony of their house during the first minutes of 2013.
Suddenly, Arif fainted. Thinking Arif was dizzy, his father immediately took him to the hospital. There, it was understood
that Arif was shot at the head by someone who most likely fired his pistol up to the air as a way of celebrating new year.
Arif died 9 days later. The bullet in his brain was the only evidence that could help to find the shooter. The person who
killed Arif “accidentally” has not been found yet and probably will never be.
