Raipur: Newly formed special unit of Chhattisgarh Police ‘Bastar Fighters’ Transgenders recently recruited as constables will participate in the Republic Day parade in Jagdalpur city for the first time. Police officials said on Wednesday that Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel will unfurl the tricolor at the function to be held at Lalbagh Maidan in Jagdalpur. Inspector General of Police of Bastar region Sundarraj P. said, ‘A platoon of ‘Bastar Fighters’ will participate in the Republic Day parade in Jagdalpur city. Eight transgender constables (out of nine) recruited in this unit will also participate.

Sundarraj said, ‘This is the first time that transgender policemen will participate in the parade of Republic Day celebrations.’ In August last year, nine transgenders were also among the 2100 constables selected for ‘Bastar Fighters’ in the state. After training, they will be posted in Maoist-affected Bastar division of the state. And for 24-year-old transgender Divya Nishad, participating in the Republic Day parade is a dream come true. Nishad says that it will be a proud moment for her when she will step out wearing the khaki uniform.

Meanwhile, security has been beefed up in all sensitive places of Chhattisgarh, especially in Maoist-affected areas, for the Republic Day celebrations.
