Medak: A debt ridden farmer committed suicide in this district on Thursday.
According to the information, Kukkuluru Narayana, 35, of Doulpur village under Jagadevpur mandal had two acres of land. He dug two bores for water which failed. Consequently, he abandoned cultivation and purchased a three-wheeler under the Rajiv Yuva Shakti scheme and had been supporting his family by driving the three-wheeler.
However, the finance company seized the auto as he failed to make EMI repayments. Unable to think of any other alternatives to run his family, he hanged himself when every one was asleep on Wednesday night. The family members were aghast when they found him hanging on Thursday.
Police have sent his body for autopsy to Gajvel.
