The police recovered the body of a transgender from Perumbakkam lake on Friday morning.
Initially, they thought it was a woman. After sending the body to the Chromepet Government Hospital, they realised that the body was a transgender person’s. The police suspect that someone might have kidnapped and killed the transperson somewhere else and dumped the body in the lake. The police are waiting for the report from hospital to ascertain if sexual assault was involved. The Pallikaranai police have registered a case and are investigating.
