The Indian Navy has sacked a sailor for undergoing a sex change surgery, holding her guilty of breaching rules.
Sabi, formerly known as Manish Giri, a naval sailor, had undergone the sex change surgery when she was on leave.
In its order, the Navy evoked the clause of Service No Longer Required (SNLR), saying that “the individual chose to undergo irreversible gender re-assignment on his own accord, whilst on leave wilfully altering his gender status from the one he was recruited for at the time of his induction”.
It said the sailor who underwent “sex reassignment surgery” while on leave was administratively discharged from the service.
