A Turkish doner kebab chef has been arrested on suspicion of slicing his belly-dancer daughter to pieces in Keslan, northwestern Turkey.
Hasan Uslu is suspected of killing the 32-year-old and cutting her limb-from-limb with notable precision after a furious argument.
The doner kebab cook was arrested after the dancer’s arm was found in local woodland by a man collecting pine cones near the Ispat Mosque on January 9.
Local media report her father has admitted to the killing after he rowed with his daughter and then dumped her body parts last month.
Didem Uslu, 32, a belly-dancer, was found expertly carved up by police officers in woodland and her kebab-chef father, Hasan, was detained on suspicion of her killing

Uslu argued with Didem before he lashed out violently, according to Sputnik News.
Her limbs were hacked off and buried in the woodland after being stored in a deep freezer which was sold on, Sputnik reported.

In his alleged confession to the police Uslu stated his daughter had psychological problems, Hurriyet reported.
Uslu claims Didem insulted him and insulted his wife and then he strangled her on December 14, the Turkish daily reported.
Didem’s mother Sati Uslu and younger sister Ozlem were also detained by police investigating the gruesome crime in the Kesan district of Edirne Province, although Ozlem has since been released.
After the dancer’s dismembered arm – hacked off at the shoulder – was found wrapped in a newspaper in woodland by the walker police were alerted.
They then used sniffer dogs to trace other parts of the body, all cut with very precise and straight incisions.

This led them to concentrate their investigation on the father of the victim and a search of his house was followed by his arrest, along with other members of the dead woman’s family.
Uslu is alleged to have admitted to strangling her and in the following days storing her in a freezer before endeavouring to bury her cut up body in the forest.
He is said to have shown these locations to the police after being brought to the burial site during his interrogation.
