Debt-ridden farmer commits suicide

Patiala: A 40-year-old farmer Hardeep Singh, son of Mahinder Singh, committed suicide by hanging himself from the ceiling fan in his house in Matraan village, near sub-divisional township of Bhawanigarh in Sangrur district. According to the information available here Hardeep Singh was depressed for long due to debt burden. He was left with only one acre of land out of four acre he used to have.

The deceased’s mother Charanjit Kaur said that as he lost most of his agricultural land due to increasing debt of the government and private institutions, Hardeep Singh got disturbed and went under depression. She said that last evening he came to the house and later hanged himself to end his life. Village sarpanch Jasbir Kaur and ex-sarpanch Jaspal Singh have urged the state government to come to the rescue of the deceased’s family.
