Man booked for killing transgender person

June 30, 2019
Police found body of the deceased from Nowshera late Saturday


Police arrested on Sunday a man from Nowshera for killing a transgender person and registered a case against him, they said.

The transgender person, Aftab alias Maya, lived with other members of the community in Peshawar, according to the police.

Officials said that Aftab's father and uncle had a heated verbal exchange with other transgender persons in Peshawar a day earlier, who alleged that Aftab was being kept there forcibly.

However, the police intervened and let the transgender person go along with his father and uncle, on the assurance that Aftab would not be harmed. Aftab's body was found from Nowshera late Saturday.

Police have apprehended Aftab's father and registered a case against him. The law enforcers are on a hunt for the deceased transgender person's uncle and brothers.
