Yavatmal: Six persons have been booked in
connection with the suicide of a Nanded-based farmer in front
of the District Collector`s office on January 26, police said.

The six accused--Pravin Shinde from Arni, Pradip
Kaliram Jadhav from Pusad, Mohan Bihade, Amol Bihade and
Bahadur Khan Faruqui, all residents of Takali and Vyenkatesh
Bute, a resident of Kawta Bazar have been booked under
relevant sections of IPC, police said.

All of them are absconding and police has launched a
search to nab them, they said.

Aziz Chandkhan Faruqui (45), a resident of Takali
(Lakmapur) in Nanded committed suicide on the Republic Day by
consuming poison after authorities failed to respond to his
numerous pleas for stopping the alleged transportation of sand
through his farm, which was destroying the standing crops,
they said.

He took the extreme step after authorities did not
take action against the sand mafias and refused him any
compensation.

Depressed, Faruqui threatened to kill himself on
Republic Day but the pleas went unheard following which he
committed suicide.
