KOCHI: Anannyah Kumari Alex, Kerala’s first transgender radio jockey, has been found dead in her Kochi apartment. Police stated that it is a possible case of suicide. 

28-year-old had spoken earlier to the media about her sex reassignment surgery, saying that she is a victim of gross medical negligence. 

"My private part looks like a piece of meat, it has no resemblance to a vagina. I want to conduct resurgery, I want justice," she said in a recent interview with The Cue.
