Abohar, September 13

The body of farmer Gurmeet Singh (45) was found hanging from the shed of a tea stall near the Seetogunno bypass here today. The deceased belonged to Bahawalbasi village which was waterlogged for the past four weeks due to heavy rain and subsequent overflow of water from the Abulkhurana drain that emanates from the Lambi segment.

His family said Gurmeet had cultivated ‘narma’ cotton after taking 10 acres on lease but the standing crop was completely damaged as stagnant water could not be drained. It appears that he took the extreme step due to desperation as he was unable to pay the contract money to the land owner. The body was shifted to the Civil Hospital for an autopsy.
