New Delhi: The Indian Navy has sacked a sailor for undergoing a sex change surgery, holding her guilty of breaching rules.

Sabi, formerly known as Manish Giri, a naval sailor, had undergone the sex change surgery when she was on leave.

In its order, the Navy evoked the clause of Service No Longer Required (SNLR), saying that “the individual chose to undergo irreversible gender re-assignment on his own accord, whilst on leave wilfully altering his gender status from the one he was recruited for at the time of his induction”.

It said the sailor who underwent "sex reassignment surgery" while on leave was administratively discharged from the service.

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

Sabi, 25, had undergone the surgery at a private facility in New Delhi in October, 2016. In a previous conversation with News18, she’d said for years she sought help from Naval doctors at both her postings. However, none was forthcoming and, instead, she’d been repeatedly prescribed medication for headaches.

She said when her superiors found out about her surgery they kept her locked in a male psychiatric ward at the INHS Kalyani, for six months.

A marine engineer, Sabi, had been serving in the Navy since 2010.
