A debt-ridden farmer, whose crops were damaged in the recent floods, allegedly committed suicide, police said on Saturday.

Lakshman Biswas (38) hanged himself in his house at Dongapar village yesterday.

The farmer left a note saying he was taking the extreme step as he had invested more than Rs one lakh, which he had borrowed from private moneylenders, and he could not bear the damage to his Boro crops in the recent flood, the police said.
