45-year-old farmer ends life in Madhya Pradesh
Bhopal: Body of a
45-year-old tribal farmer was found hanging from a tree in Bashinda village of
Betul district in Madhya Pradesh, with police suspecting suicide due to alleged
failure of crops.
Murat Walke was on
Friday found hanging from a tree in the village, some 80 km from here, Inspector
Shyamlal Sahu of Mohda police station said.
Walke's daughter said
he was in stress because his soybean crops were damaged. He told her two days
ago that as his crops have failed, he was going to Maharashtra to look for a
job, he said.
She said his father
left the house on October 7 on the pretext of going to Maharashtra, but was
found dead this morning, he said. Sahu also said that Walke was suffering from
tuberculosis, which might have forced him to end his life.
He might have taken the
step two days back, but his body was found this morning, he further said. “We have registered a case and further
investigations are on,” he said.
