The authorities in India’s Uttar Pradesh state are trying to work out what to do with a senior police officer who likes dressing up in drag.
Things came to a head last week when inspector general Devendra Kumar Panda turned up in court in a yellow dress and dark red lipstick.
TV news channels flocked to his home to film him worshipping Hindu deity Lord Krishna in the form of a tree.
Mr Panda says he is the reincarnation of Goddess Radha, Lord Krishna’s beloved.
His wife takes a different view – she has filed for separation because he is not behaving like a husband.
