RAJAHMUNDRY: A transgender person committed suicide after she was reportedly cheated on by her boyfriend in Rajahmundry.
One [deadname] (29) of Murari in Gandepalli mandal had become a transgender [woman] six years ago and has been living in Simhachal Nagar in Rajahmundry since then. She changed her name from [deadname] to Midde Praneetha. She fell in love with one Katta Srinu from the same area. Of late, Praneetha began suspecting Srinu of being in a relationship with another transgender [woman].
Praneetha had frequent quarrels with Srinu. During an argument, Srinu had told Praneetha to die if she wants.
Upset over the comments made by him, Praneetha consumed pesticide and was admitted to Government General Hospital, Rajahmundry. She was later shifted to a private hospital for better treatment. Praneetha died while undergoing treatment.
Angry members of the transgender community staged a dharna demanding stern action against Srinu. Three Town sub-inspector Ayyappa Reddy booked a case under section 306 IPC for abetting suicide.
