Burdened with debt, farmer ends life


OST Bureau

Aska, Sep 29:

Failure to repay debts allegedly drove a farmer to commit suicide in Bhelipur village under Aska block on Saturday.

The 41-year-old farmer, Gouri Shankar Bisoi, was found hanging inside his rented house in Ganesh Nagar under Gosaninuagaon police limits. Bisoi was staying there along with his wife and two sons.

While the exact reasons behind Bisoi’s extreme step could not be ascertained immediately, his family members said he was under severe mental pressure to repay his mounting debts. They said he had taken loans from several sources for farming but was in no position to repay. (SPM)
