Debt-ridden pomegranate grower commits suicide
A young pomegranate grower committed suicide by consuming pesticide at his farm in Vakkalagere, Kaduru taluk on Thursday. The police gave the name of the farmer as Rudresh (26), who had borrowed Rs 4 lakh loan, including Rs1 lakh from a bank, to grow pomegranate in his four-acre farm. He had drilled borewells in the farm to cultivate pomegranate. He had no earnings from the land to repay the loan, which may have been the reason for him taking this extreme step.
