Chandigarh, March 1

Former Miss India Tripura Rinky Chakma has died at the age of 28 after a two-year battle with cancer.

Despite undergoing surgery, Chakma succumbed to the disease.

The news of her death was shared by Femina Miss India, in a statement on social media, recognising Chakma as ‘a force to be reckoned with, embodying grace and purpose’.

Chakma’s journey with cancer was a challenging one, as she revealed in an Instagram post just last month. Initially opting to battle the disease alone, she eventually shared she had malignant phyllodes tumour (breast cancer). It later metastasized into her lungs and head (brain tumour).

Chakma said that she was undergoing chemotherapy in the hopes of eventually undergoing brain surgery.

However, it posed significant challenges, exhausting her family’s savings and accepting donations.

Chakma remained grateful for the love she received from well-wishers.
