Gujranwala: Policemen booked for spoiling transvestite gathering
GUJRANWALA: Transvestites on Saturday demonstrated on GT Road and outside the office of the city police officer as a protest against Dhulley police, which allegedly manhandled them and snatched cash and gold ornaments from them. The protesters roughed up an assistant sub–inspector who was involved in the incident and called for an action against him. It is said that transvestites were celebrating birthday of their guru in the Dhulley locality when ASI Riaz Ahmad and two other policemen went there in civvies and spoiled their event.
The protesters alleged that policemen snatched Rs150,000 and gold ornaments from them. They dispersed when the police sent ASI Riaz behind the bars after registration of a case against him and his two colleagues.
Model Town DSP Abdul Qayyum Gondal said the ASI and his colleagues had been booked under Section 506/155C of the Pakistan Penal Code.
