An Indian naval officer who underwent sex change surgery has been discharged from service.

A navy statement said its "rules and regulations do not permit the sailor's continued employment" because of "irreversible gender reassignment".

Sabi, formerly Manish Giri, has said that she will appeal to the military court against her sacking.

It has sparked a debate on transgender rights in India, where it is legally recognised as a third gender.
