On Tuesday, the Delhi high court had granted police protection to the girl who claimed she was a "transgender" studying neurobiology at a prestigious college in California, when she was forcibly sent to India by her parents to study in Radha Soami's Dayalbagh College so that she could be "reformed". When TOI spoke with the girl on Wednesday, she said, "I identify myself as a male. When I revealed this to my parents in California, they tortured me and said I had to dress up and behave like a woman."
