Three transgender persons among four arrested for storming police station in Gujrat

GujratOn Monday, four people were arrested for storming and vandalising a police station in Kharian, Gujrat district. Three of them were transsexual.

According to sources, the incident occurred after members of the transgender community reached an agreement with local authorities on Sunday over alleged abuse of one of them.

The incident began with a disagreement between police officers and a eunuch named Hira and her male partner during a stop-and-search in Kharian.

Following a verbal altercation, Hira and her partner were allegedly taken to the police station and tortured before being released.

In retribution, a group of transgender people attacked the police station, with eyewitnesses describing a chaotic scene in which protestors armed with rocks and stones vandalized property and dragged furniture into the streets.

District Police Officer (DPO) Asad Muzaffar responded quickly by launching a high-level investigation led by the SP Investigation.

Based on the committee’s findings, a case was filed against 27 individuals, 20 of whom were unnamed, under 12 separate legal laws.

According to the DPO, a charge has also been filed against police officers accused of abusing a transgender individual.
