City police seek guidelines to deal with LGBT cases
Participants at the workshop also inquired about sections that could be applied in specific instances about the LGBT community. Inspector Nitin Jadhav of Lashkar police station said, "We now feel that by mentioning their sex as other than male or female, we would be treating the case in a fair manner. By putting them in just two compartments of male or female, the incident looks completely different. But by mentioning their gender more clearly we would be giving them a fair voice in the legal process."
Khire added, "There are many issues that were debatable. But the best part is police now feel the need to talk about it." A transgender person and a gay person who works for an IT company also shared their experiences.
