Protest In Pakistan Over Murder, Mutilation Of Transgender Person
Transgender activists staged a passionate protest in the Pakistani city of Peshawar to condemn the murder and mutilation of a transgender woman. The August 20 demonstration came four days after a woman identified in local media as Nazo was reportedly shot dead at a wedding. Police said her body was later hacked to pieces. Two arrests have been made in the case. TransAction Pakistan, an activist group supporting the rights of transgender persons, said it was the 62nd killing of a transgender person in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province since 2015.
