Miss South India Ansi Kabeer and former Miss Kerala runner-up Anjana Shajahan died in a car crash in Kerala’s Kochi on Monday.
Miss South India 2021 Ansi Kabeer, who was crowned Miss Kerala in 2019, and the runner-up in the competition that year Anjana Shajahan died in a road accident in Kochi’s Vyttilla, Kerala, on Monday.
According to a news report, both the models died on the spot after the car in which they were travelling swerved to avoid hitting a two-wheeler and instead rammed into a tree. The accident took place near Chakkaraparambu on the Vytilla-Edappally stretch of the NH66 in the wee hours of Monday. Their car was disfigured beyond repair.
Two men who were travelling with the models to Thrissur after wrapping up a photo shoot in Kochi are under treatment at Ernakulam Medical Centre hospital in Palarivattom. One of the injured is reportedly in a critical condition. The remains of the deceased are in the hospital.
Families of both models rushed to Kochi upon hearing the news. While Ansi Kabeer hailed from Thiruvananthapuram, Anjana Shajan’s native town is Thrissur. The two had developed a friendship on the sidelines of the 2019 Miss Kerala event.
