Yesteryear Malayalam actor Rekha Mohan died of a heart attack, the post-mortem report has revealed. Rekha was found dead inside her apartment in Thrissur on Saturday.
Since a glass with some drink was found next to her body, police had doubted that it was a suicide. But the autopsy report has revealed that there was no presence of poison in her body.
The actor had been undergoing cancer treatment for the last few months.
Rekha was living with her husband in a Shobha City apartment in Thrissur. Her husband was away on a business tour when she died at home.
After being unable to get in touch with Rekha for two days, her husband from Malaysia contacted the police in Thrissur. When police entered the apartment, which was reportedly locked from the inside, they found Rekhaâ€™s body in a sitting position, with her head laid down on the table.
Rekha was known for her performances in films like â€śUdyanapalakanâ€ť, â€śYathramozhiâ€ť and â€śNe Varuvolamâ€ť. She also had a popular small-screen appearance in the serial â€śMayammaâ€ť.
