Two debt-ridden farmers commit suicide in Andhra Pradesh
Karimnagar: Two debt-ridden farmers allegedly committed suicide in this district of Andhra Pradesh, police said on Saturday.
The suicides were reported yesterday from separate villages.
Vangapalli Lingaiah, 47, a farmer of Venkatraopet village in Konaraopet mandal, had raised cotton crop by taking seven acres of land on lease.
For this he borrowed about Rs two lakh from private financiers. He did not get the expected yield. Unable to pay the loan to the financiers, he consumed insecticide, they said.
In the second incident, Bendrapu Ella Reddy, an agriculturist of Tangallapalli village, hanged himself in his house. The 45-year-old had also raised cotton crop in two acres but failed to get the expected yield. Depressed over financial problems, he ended his life, police said.
