PESHAWAR: Peshawar police arrested an entire wedding party at a private ceremony between a man and a transvestite, who were presented in a Peshawar court house, Tuesday.
Police officials accused the pair of promoting homosexuality in the country. The would-be-bride Raani, whose real name was given as Kashif and the groom Malik Iqbal were presented in court.
Almost 50 people, many of them men dressed as women, were at the ceremony on Monday night when it was raided by police. A bus full of transvestites were later jailed.
This recent development comes just months after the Supreme Court had ordered transvestites to be awarded a separate gender identity in Pakistan.
