In their representation, they told the DGP that the notifications issued to fill the police posts were meant only to male and female candidates and not for them.
Citing some judgments of the Supreme Court and various high courts, they said the verdicts of the courts had made it clear that the transgenders could also compete for any government job as they have the physical strength to do so.
