Transgender actress and model, Bishesh Huirem was attacked by a police team escorting State Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Minister Moirangthem Okendro. Bishesh will represent the country at the Miss International Queen in Thailand. She is among the 30 transgender candidates selected from applicants from 155 countries.
Earlier in the week, when she was in Imphal, this untoward incident took place. She was there for a performance of Shumang Leela, a local folk theater art form. There was an altercation about the right way, in a narrow road, following which she and a friend were allegedly beaten.
Due to this incident, she was unable to finish her performance on the stage, a few days later. ‘Though the incident happened in front of the Minister, he did not come out and stop his escort team from beating me,’ said Huirem.
