The KGMU psychiatry ward has also provided support, according to DCP, West, Somen Barma, because many of the transgenders face social alienation and fall prey to other psychological and emotional problems.But they shouldn't have to worry anymore because doctors will be there to support them.According to him, the cell will open the way to a long road of building bridges to ensure a just society for all.Barma said they were looking for an NGO that could provide an example to the cops stationed at the desk so they can understand and address their case in the most professional way.

The help desk is just a small step toward a great start.It would make a big difference, said Chiranjeev Nath Sinha, additional deputy police commissioner, West Zone.He said that most cases of extortion during a housewarming event, and birth of children occur against the transgender community, and that we would also need to involve a very sensitive approach when dealing with them.While the Mumbai police commissionerate and Kolkata police department are separate entities, the Supreme Court recognized the transgender community as a third gender, along with male and female, and ruled that they enjoy equal treatment over the Indian Constitution's fundamental rights.
