Dongre Jagjivan, a 28-year-old cotton farmer from Saleguda (K) In Utnoor mandal, ended his life on Saturday owing to failure of crop due to heavy rainfall. According to the police, the farmer consumed poison at his residence due to rainfall causing unchecked growth of weeds which hampered the growth of cotton plants.

Jagjivan is the fourth cotton farmer to end his life in the last three days. While two farmers committed suicide on Thursday, Jadi Shankar, a 50-year-old farmer from Gudem in Bejjur ended his life on Friday.
