Girl turns boy after sex-change operation in Kohat

KOHAT: A 20-year-old girl went through a sex-change operation in Kohat city of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) on Friday, local media reported.


The girl was operated at a local hospital under the supervision of surgeon Dr Shahzad and after the successful transition got engaged to a childhood friend.

Dr Shahzad has reportedly conducted four such surgeries in the past, turning women into men.

Earlier this year, a family living in Chakwal district of Punjab had their girls turned into boys after a sex-change operation.

The parents remained confused about their gender as their sexual organs were not explicit. After months of inquiries and visits to doctors, Dr Masroor Malik at the Benazir Bhutto Hospital (BBH) in Rawalpindi declared them boys.

After getting confirmation from the BBH, Qadeer had moved an application with the local union council office for changing the names and gender of his siblings. The local administration referred the matter to the District Headquarters Hospital Chakwal where a medical board also declared the siblings as male.

Back in 2013, A married woman Nagina Akram of Toba Tek Singh went through a similar surgery and started running a tyre shop on a bus stand.
