Even though we say that love has no boundaries, but sometimes it sees a terrible end. Two girls met in Jhansi district of Uttar Pradesh, soon befriended and fell in love. As expected, they faced outrage from their relatives, and when one of them had a gender reassignment, things turned sour.
Sonal was staying with her parents in Jhansi when Sana came in as a paying guest and stayed on the top floor of the same house in 2016. They first became friends and then fell in love within four months.
As soon as Sonal’s parents learned of their daughter’s relationship with a woman, they asked Sana to leave the house.
Sana, who was a government employee in Jhansi, was allocated a quarter and moved in 2017. After a few days, Sonal also left her house to live with her.
Later, Sonal convinced Sana to have sex reassignment surgery and before that, the duo visited Delhi-based Sir Ganga Ram Hospital where doctors performed some medical tests and declared Sana “fit” for the surgery.
Sana then underwent surgery in June 2020 and said she had officially changed her name to Sohail Khan. During her hospitalization, Sonal signed all medical documents as Sohail Khan’s “wife,” Sana said, according to the news agency IANS.
In 2022, Sonal got a job at Yatharth Hospital. However, things soon turned sour for Sohail when she noticed a change in Sonal’s behavior.
Sonal started avoiding her and spent most of her time in the hospital, which often led to arguments between them.
One night, Sohail saw Sonal crying and saying she missed her family during a group chat with two others.
However, she soon discovered that Sonal was dating one Gyaan, who worked with her in the same hospital. When questioned, Sonal said she wanted to live with Gyaan. Sonal soon left Sohail and returned home. She and her family even filed a case against Sohail, accusing her of rape, kidnapping and harassment.
Sohail recounted the ordeal to the police, after which Sonal was summoned for questioning, but she failed to show up. Sohail then approached the court, but Sonal avoided appearing in court.
Sonal was arrested on January 18 and is now out on bail. The next hearing is on February 23.
