MANSEHRA: A transgender person, who was critically injured in a gun attack, died in a hospital on Wednesday.
Hazara Transgender Association president Nadar Khan told reporters that Sabtain Khan had fired at five members of the community, including Sameer, Kaif, Tulsi, Muna and Natasha, in their house here last month leaving them all seriously injured.
“Sameer had succumbed to the injuries on the second day of firing, while Kaif breathed his last on Wednesday,” she said.
Ms Nadar said the body was shifted to the King Abdullah Teaching Hospital for postmortem.
She demanded exemplary punishment of the accused, who was held a day after firing.
The association leader said Kaif’s murder had taken the number of transgender persons killed in the province during the last few years to 98.
Mohammad Shehbaz, the brother of the deceased, demanded of the police to protect the life and property of transgender persons in the province.
