But the young man refused to fulfill the legal requirements and actively resisted the service activities of the employees.

On June 20, the administrative case opened against him was considered in the Shaykhantakhur district court on criminal cases. P.B. confirmed in court that he used to wear women’s “burqa” around the market because he was interested in women’s clothes from a young age.

The young man was sentenced to a fine of 10 BCAs (3 million 400 thousand UZS) and 15-day administrative imprisonment. He has the right to file an appeal against the court verdict within 10 days.
