Chandy, who had been undergoing treatment for cancer for quite some time, died at his Kochi home on Friday afternoon, they said.

The businessman-turned politician represents Kuttanad constituency in Alappuzha district in the state Assembly.

Chandy was forced to quit as Kerala transport minister from the Pinarayi Vijayan-led LDF government in November 2017 after facing encroachment allegations.

He resigned after the Kerala High Court dismissed his petition, challenging a report of the Alappuzha District Collector on alleged encroachments by a company in which he has a stake.
