Transgender ends life as mother refuses to accept him

in INDIA, 17/08/2013

Dejected over his mother's refusal to accept him after he underwent a sex-change surgery, a 27-year old committed suicide in Tamil Nadu's Anamalai.

Kalimuthu underwent the surgery and became a transgender a couple of years ago, police said.

He returned to his native in Uppili nearly two months ago, with Aparna as his new indentity. However, his mother, averse to his behaviour, refused to accept him as Aparna and asked him to get out of the house.

Depressed over this, he committed suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling of the house, police said.
