In a kind gesture, personnel attached to the Choolaimedu police station are taking turns to help two aged and ailing transgender persons. They have given them groceries worth Rs 6,000 for the second time in the past three months.
While police officials often conduct meeting with the transpersons, in November last year, some transgenders sought financial help for two of their aged and ailing transgenders — Sasi and Kokila.
While all police personnel pitched in to buy them groceries worth Rs 6,000, Thozhi, an NGO working for the welfare of transpersons, requested for help again. Sub-inspectors Jhansirani and Balaguru collected money from other police personnel and bought them rice, groceries and vegetables. The transgenders thanked police for their help.
