A farmer committed suicide at Palvancha village in Tekmal mandal of Medak district on Sunday by hanging. According to sources, V. Srinivas dug three borewells last year and only one yielded partial result. He cultivated sugarcane but the yield was not up to the expectation and due to lack of sufficient water in the borewell as well as erratic power supply, the crop started drying up. Unable to repay mounting debts, he committed suicide.
