Two farmers commit suicide

Two debt-ridden farmers committed suicide in the State. Manjunath, 43, a resident of Taruve village in Mudigere taluk, had borrowed nearly Rs 3 lakh from various sources. His paddy crop was afflicted by blast disease. Being unable to repay and the loss of paddy crop pushed him to take the extreme step.

Lakshman, 55, a resident of Thimakapura village in Periyapatna taluk of Mysuru district, consumed pesticide and ended his life, allegedly due to debts, on Wednesday.

Lakshman had grown paddy and tobacco on his three-acre land. He had availed a loan of Rs 2.70 lakh from a cooperative society in the town, according to his wife Kamalamma.
