The report seized equipment and tools that were used by official security members in torturing prisoners and detainees of different political trends. 

In their report, the committee members described the most popular methods of torture as to hang the person on the wall and to tie the detainee's hand behind his back then he is dangled from the ceiling naked and remains like this till he confesses, the agency said. 

The report was submitted to the Turkish parliament Saturday.
