Woman farmer commits suicide

Staff Reporter

SRIKAKULAM: A distressed woman farmer on Wednesday committed suicide by hanging at Patpatnam of Srikakulam district.

Ramanamma (55), had taken a loan of Rs. 60,000 from local financiers and raised crop on four acres. Driven to desperation by crop loss caused by unseasonal rain she took the extreme step near the paddy field. Sources said Ramanamma was missing from Tuesday night. Family members searched for her but in vain.

10 deaths

According to reports reaching here, two ryots committed suicide and as many as eight persons died of heart attack in the last four weeks. Apparao took the extreme step in Kapuvuvilada of Santabommali recently.

Gonapu Janakiram died of heart attack in Santabommali mandal on Tuesday. Tenant farmers are the worst-hit.

The district administration estimated that crop in 1.73 lakh acres was damaged. However, help was yet to reach the farmers. Only 20 paddy procurement centres had been opened till date. Farmers were not happy with the centres as there was no transport facility for shifting discoloured paddy.
