Hijras clash with villagers in Thakurgaon, 6 injured
A group of hijras clashed with villagers on Saturday evening over demanding money in Thakurgaon, leaving six people, including five members of the transgender community, injured, police said. The incident took place at the residence of one Hafiz Uddin in Krishnapur village under the sadar upazila’s Rahimanpur union. Five of the injured were treated at the Thakurgaon Sadar Hospital but Hafiz had been shifted to Rangpur Medical College Hospital after his condition deteriorated, sadar hospital’s doctor Subhendu Kumar Debnath said. Hafiz’s wife Nur Asa said two hijras – Kajol and Rani – came to their house on Saturday afternoon and demanded Tk3,000. “They caused a commotion and assaulted me when I refused to give in to their demand,” she said. “Later, a group of them, led by hijra development association’s president Ruby, attacked our house and vandalized it,” Asa said. “They attacked me, my husband Hafiz Uddin, son Nur Hasan and daughter Khadiza when we tried to stop them.” However, Ruby claimed they did not go there to extort money. “They called some of the hijras to dance to celebrate the birth of Nur Hasan’s son. They attacked and injured four of us when we sought money after the dance,” Ruby added. Dr Subhendu said they treated five hijras and one of them required stitches in the head. Sadar police station’s Sub-Inspector Biswanath Roy said they rushed to the spot after they had learned about the clash and stopped both sides. No complaint has so far been filed over the incident, he said. “We will take legal actions once we get any complaint.”
