DERA ISMAIL KHAN:
The police raided an apartment building in Gas Mandi late Saturday night and forcibly evicted three khwaja saras, a City police station official told The Express Tribune.
According to the official, the police received reports that the three transgenders living in the building were allegedly involved in questionable activities.
SHO Haroon Khan along with a police team raided the house and threw the three accused out.
“We called them to the police station. When they didn’t turn up we went and forced them out ourselves,” said SHO Khan.
The accused were identified as Laila, Jahanzeb, a resident of Yarak, DI Khan and Ghulam Murtaza, a resident of Faisalabad, Punjab.
Meanwhile, DI Khan She-Males Union President Laila told The Express Tribune transgender people are not involved in immoral activities and if the police receive any such complainants they should first hold an inquiry before forcibly kicking them out of their homes.
