Manish, who underwent the sex change operation "at a private facility whilst on leave, was administratively discharged from the Service", says the Indian Navy.

Indian Navy press release - "The sailor, who now goes by the name Sabi, made a decision to undergo the surgery "on his [her] own accord, whilst on leave willfully altering his [her] gender status".

Manish Kumar Giri a.k.a Sabi - Born male, Sabi underwent sex reassignment surgery in Delhi and this was without notifying the forces, while he was on leave.

"The individual chose to undergo irreversible gender re-assignment on his own accord, whilst on leave willfully altering his gender status from the one he was recruited for at the time of his induction", it had said.

The current rules and regulations of the Indian Naval Services do not permit the sailor to continue her services due to the altered gender status. Why should I be dismissed from service just because I changed my gender?

But growing discomfort over sexuality and being felt trapped inside a male body, Giri underwent a sex change surgery in 2016 to become a woman. The call was taken in consultation with the Ministry of Defence.

The Navy is inducting a small number of women as officers, and only men as sailors, soldiers and airmen. After the surgery, I was forced to stay away from the ship and work from the base. Sabi, who was diagnosed with gender identity disorder, said she sought help from the naval doctors but was turned away. Sabi alleged Navy authorities tried to prove her "mentally unfit". Eventually, she consulted civil doctors in Visakhapatnam.

"I served the country for seven years".

The navy sent her to a psychiatric hospital for six months. I have the same rights as other enjoys.

Sabi told India Today, "I can still pull the trigger of a gun and shoot the enemy, why am I not fit to serve my country?" Sabi said she is ready to move Supreme Court if the need be to fight for her rights and is also considering writing to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking justice.
