Berhampur, May 1:

Yet another farmer committed suicide allegedly after losing his mental balance due to debt burden in Odisha’s Ganjam district today.

Santanu Naik (28) of Kantapada Mathmagundapur under Rambha police limits committed suicide under severe mental stress to repay loans by consuming poison, family sources alleged.

According to reports, the deceased farmer Santanu had borrowed about Rs 8 lakhs for cultivation. He was under severe mental pressure owing to repeated crop failures and bleak prospects of repaying his debt.
