In a bizarre incident, a youth was allegedly "deceived" into undergoing a gender change surgery by his "friend" to fulfill a mirage plan with alleged connivance of the doctors at a medical college hospital in Uttar Pradesh's Muzaffarnagar district.

According to local police, the victim later has alleged that he was operated for sex change without his consent at a local hospital.

However, the hospital has claimed that the man underwent the sex reassignment process of his own will.

The 20-year-old victim claimed that the man named Om Prakash had been threatening and harassing him for two years. On June 3, the victim said Om Prakash took him to the hospital, where he was sedated and deceptively made to undergo an operation. When he woke up the next morning, he found his genitals were cut off.

"When I woke up, Om Prakash told me that I am a woman now and that he would take me to Lucknow to marry me. He threatened to kill my father if I resisted," the man said, adding that the doctors and staff at the hospital were colluding with Om Prakash. Based on a complaint by the man's father on June 16, the police have arrested Om Prakash.

However, members of the Bharatiya Kisan Union staged a protest outside the hospital, alleging there was laxity in the police investigation.

According to farmer leader Shyam Pal, the doctors at the hospital were involved in the illegal organ trade. "I believe there is a very big racket going on here where they remove vital organs of the body and sell them at a higher price," he said.

Pal also demanded the government to direct the hospital to pay Rs20 million compensation to the man and his family.

Ramashish Singh, Circle Officer of Khatauli police station in Muzaffarnagar, said, "There was a case here in which a person was operated for sex change. His family members alleged that he was misled by another person and the operation was done. Whatever allegations have been made by them, have been taken into consideration. Further investigation is underway."

However, hospital authorities denied the man's claim that he was deceptively operated on.
