Turkey's top court sent back an indictment calling for the closure of the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) to the prosecutor on procedural grounds, state-owned Anadolu Agency said on Wednesday.

The Constitutional Court ruled that the indictment had procedural omissions and returned it to the Court of Cassation, it said.

A top prosecutor had filed the lawsuit earlier this month demanding a ban on the HDP for alleged ties to Kurdish militants, as well as a five-year political ban on more than 600 members of the party.
