SIALKOT, July 5: A young girl became boy after undergoing sex-change surgery at Daska city on Saturday.

Reportedly, Hafsa (16), daughter of Bashir, a farmer of Bambaanwala village, felt severe pain in her belly. She was taken to a private hospital in Daska where Dr Tahir Iqbal Cheema diagnosed that hers was a sex-change case. He conducted a surgery, transforming the gender of the girl who was named Junaid.

Junaid, who has now become the only brother of his seven sisters, told Dawn at the hospital that though he and his family were happy with his transformation to a boy, he would miss his female friends. It was the second sex-change incident at Daska during the last 10 days. Earlier, a Chak Jhumra-based woman, Farzana (23), had become a boy after a similar surgery. — Correspondent
