Pakistani cross-dressers were tortured to death by the legals in Saudi Arabia, as it was reported. The victims were among 35 men arrested in the capital city of Riyadh for wearing female clothes, which is a legal offence in the strict Muslim country. According to The Express Tribune, a Pakistani publication, police raided a rest house after they found out that cross-dressers had gathered there. The two victims were named as Meeno, 26, and Amna, 35. The police allegedly forced them into sacks and thrashed them with sticks while in prison. The human rights activist from Pakistan recalled that while 11 of those arrested who survived were released after paying a 150 Riyal (£32) fine, 22 of them were still in police custody. “Torturing humans after throwing them into bags and beating them with sticks is inhumane,” he added. ”No-one is there to save them as the life of a transgender is not of any value to anyone, not even our own government.”
