Farmer jumps to death from Indore hospital

Indore: A farmer, reportedly facing loan
burden, first consumed poison and then jumped to death Friday morning from the hospital where he was admitted, police said.
Rajesh Patidar, a resident of Jamli village, about 40
km from here, was admitted to a private hospital here after he
consumed poison. But finding himself alone, he jumped from the
fifth floor of the hospital, police officer T S Baghel said.

The 40-year-old was admitted to the ICU where he was
declared dead, he said, adding a case of suicide has been
lodged.
Quoting the deceased`s relatives, Baghel said Patidar
was reportedly facing severe financial crisis due to mounting
loans which ran into lakhs. He had recently sold a `bigha` of
agricultural land to reduce the loan burden.
