Kerala's first transgender bodybuilder Praveen Nath allegedly committed suicide in Thrissur on Thursday, police said.
Nath, who was in his late 20s, reportedly took his own life by ingesting poison at his suburban home on Thursday afternoon, police said.
His body has been taken to the Government Medical College Hospital, they said.
Praveen's death comes three months after he married trans woman Rishana Aishu on 14 February. She is a model and the winner of the Miss Malabar pageant.
He had reportedly put a Facebook post announcing his separation and deleted it within an hour. The post said:
"We live together. I put a post saying so and it was deleted within an hour. (I had to write that in a particular situation, it's very personal) I don't know what there is to celebrate. Do not spread the news that we have broken up, do let us live a good life Have Malayalam news pages degraded so much?” he later wrote on 1 May, reported The News Minute.
