Protests in Pakistan after father arrested for murder of transgender daughter

The woman, Maya, had left her home in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province and was living with a group of transgender people called the Meena Group in the Pakistani city of Peshawar.

When her father and uncle attempted to bring her home on Saturday (July 29), she went to a local police station saying that she feared for her life. But police allowed her family to take her after her father gave them written assurance that he would not harm his child.

Maya’s bullet-ridden body was discovered just hours later beside a river bank in Nowshera.

Local police suspect her father, who was reportedly “unhappy” with her choice to live as a transgender woman.

According to Pakistan’s News International, he said he tried his best to stop his son from being a part of the group as it had brought a bad name to his family.
