Trans Cop Attempts Suicide After Being Harassed by Colleagues

A transgender police officer, R Nasriya, attempted suicide after being harassed by three of her co-workers in India.

Hindustan Times reported that R Nasriya said via a video posted on WhatsApp that she had been constantly bullied for being trans by her colleagues at the police force located in the town of Ramanathapuram, Tamil Nadu.

The 22-year-old police officer said, “I am taking this extreme step because these three behaved indecently and made me suffer a lot by teasing and torturing. They are solely responsible for my death.”

Nasriya drank rat poison in an attempt to die by suicide and made the video posted on WhatsApp, said her colleagues “behaved indecently” and “teased” her.

Three names were mentioned in the video, belonging to the three officers and has since gone viral, putting the blame on them for her attempt to die by suicide.

The trans cop said, “I am taking this extreme step because these three behaved indecently and made me suffer a lot by teasing and torturing. They are solely responsible for my death.”

“Friends, please share this with others and get the officials responsible for my death punished.”

Fortunately, the officer is in stable condition and has been moved to the passport department of the office after filing a complaint about how she’s being treated in the armed reserve battalion. The rules of the police in Tamil Nadu changed by allowing trans people to apply for jobs at the force in 2017, and Nasriya joined in August.

The state of Tamil Nadu previously made an announcement that it would pay for trans people’s gender reassignment surgeries. Before that, a study in 2016 by the National Centre for Transgender Equality said that about 40% of transgender people have attempted to take their own lives. In 2015, the U.S. Transgender Survey reported that one in four trans adults reported attempting suicide.

Further studies have also revealed that young lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGBT) people are more likely to attempt suicide than straight people their mate. A study in 2016 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention discovered that lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGBT) young people are three times more likely to contemplate committing suicide than heterosexual youths seriously and that LGBT youth were almost five times more likely to have attempted suicide than heterosexual young people.
