Mumbai, Nov 13 (UNI) Sunil Pant, who became the first gay member of Nepal's newly-elected constituent assembly this year, today condemned the recent alleged police attacks on eunuchs in Bangalore and the ''inhuman treatment'' meted out to the third gender.

Mr Pant was a special invitee at today's protest rally organised by 'The Sangama', an Non-Government Organisation (NGO) working on gender and sexual minority rights, at Azad Maidan here against attacks on eunuchs in Bangalore.

Mr Pant said ''This event is an attempt of celebrating the diversity and richness of the human experience through creating a space for the voices and visions of resistors, who challenge the dominant nations of sexuality and break the silence around the hidden realities of persons involved in sexwork and marginalilsed genders and sexualities.'' The participant organisations of the rally also condemned the alleged attack on an eunuch by the Girinagar police and arrest of five eunuchs on October 20. They urged the government to dismiss the guilty police officers and prosecute them for the crimes including assault, abuse, sexual assault and illegal detention.
