A farmer committed suicide in Madhya Pradesh’s Chhatarpur area, police and relatives said.
While the family of Raghuvir Yadav, 27, affirmed that he made the extraordinary stride because of his mounting debt, the police said a family debate drove him to end his life. The 27-year-old farmer devoured a poisonous substance on June 21 at Pali town in Chhatarpur area of Bundelkhand district, Sub-Divisional Officer Police (SDOP) SP Dohre said.
He passed on last night when he was being taken to Gwalior for treatment, he said.
“A few days back, the farmer’s dad Deshpat Yadav had complained of harassment against his children, including elder child Munshi Yadav. There was a family argument about the division of property,” Mr Dohre said.
Notwithstanding, Munshi Yadav said Raghuvir was under worry because of financial weight on him, and kept up that there was no family debate.
Upwards of 21 debt-ridden agriculturists have finished their lives in the state in the last fortnight.
Recently, two suicides were accounted for from Chhatarpur and Sagar areas of Bundelkhand locale, one was accounted for from Budni, the Assembly section of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, and another from a town in Chhindwara, the parliamentary seat of senior Congress pioneer Kamal Nath. The western Madhya Pradesh as of late saw a noteworthy agriculturists’ tumult for credit waiver and remunerative prices, fuelled further by the demise of five people in police firing in Mandsaur area on June 6.
