Minister assures help for transgender teacher
Thiruvananthapuram, Jan 11 (PTI) Kerala Education Minister V Sivankutty on Tuesday intervened in the issue of Aneera Kabir, a transgender teacher, who had recently approached the state Legal Services Authority for a lawyer to apply for euthanasia as she was finding it difficult to get a job.
Sivankutty spoke to Kabir over phone and assured to resolve her problem at the earliest.
