Tamil Nadu farmer commits suicide after impounding of tractor

Ariyalur: A farmer in Tamil Nadu’s Ariyalur district committed suicide after his tractor was impounded for non-payment of a loan.

The farmer, Azhagar, had taken a loan of Rs. seven lakhs from a private financing agency to buy a tractor, out of which he had already repaid Rs. five lakhs.

Several people from the finance company came to Azhagar’s residence yesterday and took away the tractor, as he was unable to repay the remaining amount.

The 25-year-old farmer is said to have consumed poison out of humiliation. (ANI)
