The incident occurred on December 14, 2022 in a rural neighborhood of Bismil district. The girl named D.Ö. and her brother A.Ö. told their mother S.S. that they were sexually abused and harassed by their stepbrother Emin Ö. Upon this, S.S. went to the gendarmerie with her children and filed a complaint. Gendarmerie teams detained Emin Ö. with an operation they organized. After the mother's complaint, the children were also referred to the Child Monitoring Center (ÇİM) for their statements. The children, whose statements were taken in the presence of psychologists and pedagogues, were handed over to the mother. Emin Ö., who was referred to the courthouse after the procedures at the gendarmerie, denied the accusations and said, "I did not do it, I do not accept it." Emin Ö. was arrested by the judge on the charge of 'qualified sexual abuse of a child'.

A lawsuit was filed against Emin Ö. at Diyarbakır 2nd Assize Court. At the 4th hearing of the case, the defendant Emin Ö. and his father A.Ö. were present, while S.S. attended via Audio and Video Information System (SEGBİS). The public prosecutor, in his final opinion on the merits, stated that the victims D.Ö. and A.Ö. were siblings from the same father as the defendant E.Ö., that there was no reason for the victims to slander the defendant, and that as a result, the defendant threatened the victim A.Ö., who is his brother, and abused him more than once in a chain, and that the defendant threatened his sister D.Ö. and sexually abused her more than once in a chain, which is fixed with all the evidence collected by the investigation and trial, and that the defendant committed the crime against the victim A.Ö. to be punished in accordance with articles 103/2, 103/3.c, 103/4, 43/1 of the Turkish Penal Code, and 103/1, 103/3.c, 103/4, 43/1 of the Turkish Penal Code, which corresponds to the action of the defendant against the victim D.
