Debt-ridden peasant kills self in MP

Betul, MP, Oct 7 (UNI) A debt-ridden farmer has allegedly committed suicide by consuming pesticide
at Athner in Madhya Pradesh's Betul District, police said.

Family members claimed that Panju Kumre borrowed Rs 2 lakh from the Kisan Credit Scheme five years ago. He was unable to repay the loan due to bad crop since the past four years.

He had sown soyabean crops this season by borrowing money but the crops failed due to poor rainfall. His wife Sushila said Panju was severely depressed due to debt. After he consumed pesticide last night, he was rushed to the community healthcare centre from where he was sent to the District Hospital where he succumbed while receiving treatment.

Since the family had no money to take back the body home, local Bharatiya Janata Party legislator Hemant Khandelwal provided them money for the purpose. Meanwhile, the district administration said the reason behind the suicide would be ascertained after investigation.
