28-year-old Anannyah had complained of serious health issues following her sex reassignment surgery earlier last year and had even accused the doctor of medical negligence during the surgery.

Kerala Health Minister Veena George has ordered a probe into Anannyah’s death.

“A transgender organisation had also given complaint regarding this. An expert committee will be formed to study issues related with sex reassignment surgery,” she said.

The state’s Health Minister has asked the Director Health Service (DHS) to also look into the matter. The state transgender association had also sent out a complaint on the matter.

She, however, later withdrew during the last week of the campaigning following internal issues within the Democratic Social Justice Party.
