TUMKUR: Yet another debt-ridden farmer committed suicide at Ponnasamudra village in Tumkur district on Tuesday.

The police said Eranna (45) of the village and his wife Boramma consumed a pesticide at their field. They were about to administer the same pesticide to their three children, when the villagers intervened and shifted them to hospital.

The police said Eranna died at the hospital. Boramma was struggling for life. On Sunday, Gangadharappa (48) immolated himself in Theriyur in the district. This is the second case of suicide during the week.

Tahasildar A.P. Ramakrishna visited the hospital.

The officials said that Eranna had borrowed a crop loan from Cauvery Kalpatharu Grameena Bank, a regional rural bank sponsored by State Bank of Mysore. They said he had taken hand loans from friends and relatives for installing three borewells in his land.
