A 22-year old trans
woman police constable here has been hospitalised after she
attempted suicide alleging harassment by three of her
superiors, police said Tuesday.
R Nasriya, who joined the police force in August this
year, shot a selfie video of her drinking rat poison and
posted it on WhatsApp Monday night, saying she was taking the
extreme step as the three superiors "misbehaved indecently"
and 'teased' her.
After seeing the video, police rushed to her room here
and admitted her to the local government hospital. After a
stomach wash, her condition was now okay, they said.
District Superintendent of Police Om Prakash Meena
ordered adepartmental inquiry by a DSP rank official into the
trans woman constable's complaint.
In the video, she named the three police personnel and
said "I am taking this extreme step becausethe three behaved
indecently and made me suffer a lot by teasing and torturing.
They are solely reponsible for my death. Friends please share
this clipping with others and get the officials responsible
for my death punished."
Police said the constable was recently shifted to the
passport section in the SP office after she had complained
about harassment in the Armed Reserve battalion.
However, she did not report for duty and resorted to
the suicide attempt, they said.
She had abstained from work twice for over 20 days each
while posted in the Armed Reserve battalion here and in
Tiruchirappalli, police said.
