Nashik: A 60-year-old farmer allegedly committed suicide here in Maharashtra apparently due to crop failure and debt burden, police said Wednesday.

Deepak Eknath Vazre, a resident of village Mukhed in Yeola tehsil, hanged himself using his turban at his residence Tuesday, they said.

Vazre, who owned agriculture land at Mukhed, had suffered losses due to drop in crop production, the police said, adding he had also taken loan from a cooperative society.

Reduction in farm production and rising loan burden may have driven the farmer to take the extreme step, they said.

A case of accidental death has been registered and further probe was underway, the police added.
