Missing man turns up as woman 18 months later

in INDIA, 13/10/2012

A railway employee who had allegedly undergone a gender reassignment surgery has caused a flutter as he was produced as a female in answer to a habeas corpus plea filed by his wife in a Dindigul court. He had reportedly iterated his desire to remain a female.

Sindhan (29) of Railway colony in Dindigul had been married to Thangarathi (25) a few years ago and they have a daughter. Sindhan went missing on March 20, 2011, and his wife who was not able to locate him filed a habeas corpus plea in the Madurai bench of the Madras high court. Dindigul north police registered a case and Sindhan arrived at the Dindigul railway station on October 3, 2012, not as Sindhan, but as a female called Sindu.
