BANGALORE:  Alleging transgenders of misbehaving with a 15-year-old boy, the residents of New Colony in RPC Layout engaged in a heated argument and threatened them of dire consequences on Monday.

According to the police, a 15-year-old boy from Malleswaram had gone to attend a function at his relatives’ house. Reportedly, in the same locality, around 50 eunuchs resided. On Monday evening, the transgenders allegedly called the boy on the pretext of showing him a dog, which he was fond of, and allegedly misbehaved with him. The boy managed to escape and informed his aunt about the incident. Later, other locals became aware of the incident and about 150 people allegedly abused the transgenders. Also, they threatened the eunuchs of dire consequences.

Following the incident Manju, a transgender, filed a complaint with Vijayanagar police. Further investigations are on.
