Two debt-ridden farmers allegedly committed suicide in Buldhana district of Maharashtra, police officials said today.
Gajanan Jaybhaye, a resident of Saukhedtejan village, left his home on Saturday night and went to his farm. The 35- year-old subsequently consumed poison and set himself ablaze after building his own pyre with woods and animal fodder kept in the farm, a police official said.
The incident came to light yesterday morning, said the official.
The police have registered a case of accidental death on a complaint filed by the father of the deceased.
The official, quoting Jaybhaye's family, said the farmer was facing some loan repayment-related problem.
In the second incident, a 34-year-old cultivator hanged himself at his residence in Shivani Taka village under Sindkhedraja tehsil of Buldhana district, an official said.
Rameshwar Kisan Tambekar killed himself on July 26 over non-repayment of bank loan and poor crop yield, he said.
