Anannyah Kumari Alex, a transgender activist, was found dead in her flat in Edappally, Kochi.
Anannyah had previously claimed that she was suffering from serious health problems as a result of a sex reassignment surgery. She also told the media that she wanted justice because it was a case of medical malpractice.
Anannyah was Kerala’s first transgender radio jockey. She had filed nomination papers to run in the Vengara constituency against P K Kunhalikutty. She later dropped out of the election race.
