Kolkata, Dec 30 (IBNS): India's maiden transgender principal of Krishnanagar Women's College in West Bengal's Nadia district, Manobi Bandyopadhyay, resigned from her post, just one year six months after her appointment, reports said on Friday.

According to reports, citing non-cooperation from colleagues, staffers and students of the college, Manobi Bandyopadhyay sent the resignation letter to the District Magistrate (DM) of Nadia, Sumit Gupta, on Tuesday (Dec 27).

Accepting the news, Nadia DM Sumit Gupta said that the resignation letter has been forwarded to state's higher education department.

Meanwhile, professors, students and non-teaching staffers of Krishnanagar Women's College alleged that Manobi Bandyopadhyay's behaviour was rude and non-cooperative.

On June 9, 2015, she took charge as India's first transgender principal of Krishnanagar Women's College.
