Though she was hailing from neighbouring Alappuzha district, she had been staying here for some years.

The transgender was reportedly suffering from depression due to some personal differences with some of her friends.

A police officer said a case has been registered for unnatural death and prima facia it was a suicide.

A detailed probe was going on.

Last year, trans woman radio jockey and model, Ananya Kumari Alex, was also found dead in an apartment in Kochi, which later triggered a controversy.
