Indian state authorities in India have announced that transgender prisoners will get their own prison blocks in the interest of protecting their privacy and human rights. “There were instances in which those belonging to the third gender faced harassment and sexual exploitation in many prisons. We used to take strong action against those found guilty in such cases. The new block is expected to offer a permanent solution to this problem,” said K Anil Kumar, special officer-in-charge of high security prison.
