Indian Navy sailor sacked for undergoing sex change procedure

Indian Navy sailor sacked for undergoing sex change procedure”

The sailor, Sabi Giri, was discharged for breaching navy rules and eligibility criteria. He returned to the INS Eksila in Vizag after undergoing the gender change surgery in 2016.

"The Indian Navy has discharged Manish Giri, a naval sailor, evoking the clause of "Service No Longer Required" under the Navy regulations", the Navy said in a statement.

It has sparked a debate on transgender rights in India, where it is legally recognised as a third gender.

He joined the Marine Engineering department of the Eastern Naval Command at Visakhapatnam seven years ago.

Manish, who is now known as Sabi, underwent the surgical procedure in August at a hospital in Delhi while he was on leave.

A sailor with the Indian Navy has been discharged after he underwent a gender reassignment surgery and transformed into a woman, reports said on Tuesday. They had said that Giri will have to quit as women are not allowed to serve on board warships or join the infantry, artillery and armoured corps in the Army.

"We have asked the government on the action to be taken by us regarding the sailor as she has spent her own money to change sex", a Navy source told Mail Today.

However, she did point out that it is "sad and worrying that a "man" the Indian Navy deemed fit for the job of being a sailor has suddenly been declared unfit because of an organ change,".

"I am not a criminal, I have done nothing wrong, I have only revealed my true identity", Sabi said, adding that she would fight for "justice".

The sailor was allegedly kept in a psychiatric ward for six months by the maritime force. "They tried to prove I am mentally unfit but they failed", she claimed. She therefore consulted civil doctors in Visakhapatnam.
