Transgender activist and radio jockey Ananyah Kumari Alex, 28, was found hanging at her flat near Kochi on Tuesday evening, according to the police. Members of the LGBT community met State Health Minister Veena George on Wednesday and sought her intervention who asked Director Health Service (DHS) to also investigate. Meanwhile, the police said they will investigate all angles.
According to her friends, Alex had undergone gender reassignment surgery last year. She was upset that the doctor who did the surgery allegedly botched up the operation which caused several health issues.
While the local police have registered a case of unnatural death and started the probe, they are waiting for the autopsy report.
