Are there any evidences of Ottoman executioneer named “Souflikar”?

Answer:

There is evidence to suggest that there was an Ottoman executioner by the name of Soulfikar who held his office under the reign of Mehmet IV, but it is difficult to find exact details on his life and actions. Some sources claim that the executioner confessed to killing over 4000 prisoners as an official executioner while other sources claim it to be over 5000. It is difficult to say how inflated these numbers are, but it is true that there was almost certainly an executioner by the name of Souflikar in the Ottoman Empire during the reign of Mehmet IV.
