Unable to repay a loan due to crop failure, a 52-year-old farmer from Vikramgadh taluka allegedly committed suicide.
"Nasik Sambre, who hails from Sadan village, had taken a loan of Rs 15,000 from some financial institutions and could not settle the amount. He killed himself at his farm by consuming pesticide yesterday," police said today.
According to Sambre's family members, his watermelon crop had failed due to bad weather following which he suffered heavy losses.
"The tiller left for his farm last morning and was later found lying unconscious by villagers at the farm itself. He was rushed to hospital where he died," said police.
Sambre was the sole breadwinner in his family. A case of accidental death has been registered, police said.
