Transgender assaulted on suspicions of being child-lifter

Jaipur: An angry mob on Saturday attacked a transgender in Udaipur suspecting her to be a member of a child lifting gang as rumours about such groups being active in various states swamped the social media.

According to police officials, transgender Basanti, a resident of Banswara, had come to Udaipur for some work. She then went to Savina Krishi Mandi when someone spread the rumour that a child had gone missing. 

An angry crowd then attacked the transgender finding her presence suspicious.

Basanti sustained several injuries and was later taken to a hospital by the police.

The police also had to use a little force to control the situation. Eleven people have been arrested in this connection, the police said.
