Two farmers, said to be debt-ridden, have allegedly committed suicide in neighbouring Buldana district in Maharashtra's Vidarbha region, police and family sources said.

Raghunath Vishwanath Gaigol, a resident of village Vitali, consumed poison yesterday and later died in a private hospital, they said.

Gaigol was reeling under financial burden, but the immediate trigger for the extreme step was non-supply of regular power which prevented timely irrigation of his standing crop, they said.

In the second incident, Dnyaneshwar Sahebrao Solanki (26), a resident of Patoda, consumed poison on October 20. He, along with his father, was facing financial burden of Rs 1.62 lakh, the sources said.
