Renowned Malayali film and TV actress, Rekha Mohan, was found dead in her apartment in Thrissur in Kerala on 12 November.
According to reports, her husband contacted the police after he failed to get in touch with Rekha for two days.
The police reportedly broke into her apartment, which was locked from inside, and recovered her dead body.
The cause of death has not been ascertained. The body has been for autopsy.
Rekha was known for her performances in projects like Udyanapalakan and Yathramozhi, to name a few.
The incident comes close on the heels of the death of popular Tamil actress Saberna Saboo, who was found dead in her apartment in Chennai this week. The police found her lying in a pool of blood and have reportedly recovered a suicide note from her flat.
