Bargarh, Sep 16:
Yet again another debt-ridden farmer has committed suicide in Odisha’s Bargarh district allegedly after consuming poison.
As per reports, the deceased farmer identified as Suresh Bhue, a resident of Baghpatra village under Gudesira panchayat had consumed pesticide after allegedly losing his mental balance as his crops failed due to scanty rainfall and pest attack.
Bhue had cultivated paddy in three acres of land by taking loans from banks and individuals.
Bleak prospects of repaying loans with failed crops had left Bhue a worried man forcing him to take the extreme step, family members said.
