Debt-ridden farmer commits suicide

Nashik, Aug 24: A 40-year-old debt-ridden farmer allegedly committed suicide by jumping before a speeding train at Panewadi in Nandgaon taluka of Nashik district, railway police said on Monday.

The incident took place around 70 km from here last evening, they said.


According to Manmad railway police, the relatives of the deceased farmer-- Sanjay Kisan Wagh-- told them that he must have taken the extreme step as he was unable to repay the loan after suffering crop losses due to unseasonal rain and hail-storm.

Further investigation is on.
