Jeweller family reports son missing, finds he has turned into daughter

The phone at the Paldi residence of a renowned family of jewellers rang, and everyone in the family jumped up. It had been a week since their youngest son Shyam* had disappeared on his way home from their shop in Madhavpura. As presumed, the call was from the police. As hoped, it was the cops telling them that their child has been traced. What was not expected, though, was the police informing the family that Shyam was no longer their son, but their daughter.

The youth had disappeared to undergo a gender reassignment surgery, said the police. His parents and younger sister are still recovering from the shock. Police said, "Shyam is a graduate and had joined the family business. Some years ago, he realised he was a man trapped in a woman's body. Shyam tried to convince his family to allow him to undergo a sex change operation but they refused to listen to him. Since then, he never spoke of it at home." Everyone thought things were fine till Shyam disappeared last week. Assistant Sub-Inspector (Madhavpura) K N Manat, who is investigating the case, said, "The family submitted a missing person application to the police. We traced his phone to a location in Navrangpura." Cops found his motorcycle parked at a private hospital.
