The government decided to recruit Hijras, who are neither male nor female, as traffic police officials from the next fiscal year.

The decision was taken as part of an attempt to rehabilitate individuals of the gender.

A Cabinet Committee meeting on Social Safety Net, chaired by Finance Minister AMA Muhith, made the decision at the ministry’s auditorium on Tuesday.

However, the appointments would be based on gender identity as well as educational qualifications of the hijras.
