[Your Story] Transgenders Did This To My Friend While On A Train To Kolkata
Lot of people have faced this kind of a situation while travelling on a train in India. We have seen how badly the transgenders behave while asking for money on trains. This is such an incident happened and this reddit user is asking for answers on how to tackle it.
Here’s the post –
“This indecent happened a couple of months ago. A few friends and I were in the sleeper compartment of a train; we were going to Calcutta. Two transgenders entered our compartment and began collecting money from the passengers: nothing unusual. They made their way over to our section. While the rest of us coughed up ten bucks each, one of my friends refused to pay; He told her to move on. She was having none of it, and began cursing him. He didn’t respond at all and continued browsing on his phone. The tranny then pulled up her saree, reached up there, and then shoved her hand into my friend’s face. We were, of course fuming inside, but no one did or said anything fearing that she would do the same thing to us. She moved on, finished the compartment, and then came back to taunt my friend: asking him if he liked that and he wants some more and the like. Again, no none dared do anything. Thankfully, she left after that.
Surely others have experienced this sort of thing before. What do you do in such a situation, besides giving in and paying up?
I’ve been told that they have unions and have special agreements with TCs and the police to carry on doing their thing. Not sure how much truth there is to that. Has anyone tried lodging a complaint or something?”
