An Indore-based doctor has come under the scanner for his role in the alleged castration of a 30-year-old man who was attacked by a group of transgenders in the city, police said on Wednesday.
Bunty Moghele, who had disguised himself as a transgender to beg on trains, had alleged that he was castrated on Friday by the group of eunuchs after turned down their demand for a bigger share of his earnings.
Like in most other places in the country, Indore's sizeable transgender population are mostly engaged in seeking alms on trains or busy road intersections though some are also said to be involved in prostitution.
"We are suspecting the role of a professional doctor in this case," said a senior police official, who added that a breakthrough was expected very soon.
Hira Nagar thana in-charge Shashikant Chaurasia said police are going through the mobile call detail records of Bunty to trace the culprits.
Bunty has named one Anita Guru, said to be the leader of the transgenders, as asking to meet her at the Indore railway station to broker a deal.
Bunty added that he fell unconscious after drinking tea offered by the group and later found himself at a hospital with is private parts missing.
