Indore: A [woman] who underwent a sex reassignment surgery to become a woman committed suicide on Saturday night due to depression four months after the operation.

Deceased Palak Tiwari (26) of Prajapat Nagar, who married a man Rohit Tiwari after being in a live-in relationship with him for eight years, hanged herself on Saturday night in Chandan Nagar area, Sub Inspector Suresh Bunkar said.

"We have not recovered a suicide note. However, the deceased was facing physical problems post surgery. She was suffering from depression as treatment and correctional surgery had failed," SI Bunkar said. Her body has been sent for post mortem in MY Hospital and investigation is underway to determine why she took this step. “No case has been registered yet,” he added.

Palak got married to Rohit four months ago in a temple. Before the wedding, she underwent surgery, which failed. She also suffered problems in her urinary system, police said. The family also told police that she suffered from depression but the reason is unknown. Police said Palak possessed documents like Aadhaar card, driving licence etc in the name of Palak Tiwari.
