Turkish officials have captured a previous top-level soccer player who admitted to suffocating his 5-year-old child while the kid was being treated in an emergency clinic on doubts of having acquired the Covid-19 virus. 

Cevher Toktas, aged 32, handed himself over to the police and admitted to having smothered his child, Kasim with a cushion on May 4, the state-run Anadolu Agency confirmed. 

The kid's passing away was at first not accepted to be suspicious and did not raise any bells, even though he was tested and came out negative for Covid-19. His body has been uncovered for an examination as a feature of the process, Anadolu detailed. 

HaberTurk TV announced that Toktas, who as of now plays with novice class group Bursa Yildirimspor, confessed to the police that he attempted to choke his child since he didn't feel any love for him and handed himself over to police eleven days after he had committed the act out of regret. 

The kid was admitted to the children's emergency clinic in the northwestern area of Bursa with a cough and high fever on April 23 — an official Turkish occasion for praising youngsters — and set in individual custody alongside his dad. 

Before long, Toktas stated, he killed the child and called for help, saying Kasim had visibly worsened. The 5-year-old was hurried to the Hospital's emergency unit but could not be saved and died after a two-hour-long struggle.

No preliminary date for a trial has been set at this point. 

Somewhere between 2007 and 2009, Toktas played for the Hacettepe soccer group, which for a short period contended in the Turkish top-level Super.
