HYDERABAD/SANGAREDDY:  The horror of farmer suicides came to Hyderabad on Wednesday when a debt-ridden farmer from Nizamabad hung himself from an electrical transformer in the heart of the city.

Two other farmers committed suicide in Medak district today, even as Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is tom-tomming the development model of Telangana in China.

B Limbaiah, 48, from Nizamabad came to Hyderabad three days ago and got his elder son, suffering from a mental ailment, admitted to a private hospital at Chaderghat.

Around 5.30 a.m., he visited the Katta Maisamma temple in lower Tank Bund where he offered `5,000 in the hundi.

Minutes later, with an intention of committing suicide, he came in the path of an onrushing RTC bus, but an alert constable stopped him. Next, he strung a rope from a transformer and himself. Some passersby noticed it and informed the police. Police said Limbaiah was a native of Rathala Ramreddy Palli in Sadasivanagar mandal of Nizamabad district.

Chikkadapally Inspector N L N Raju said that Limbaiah was depressed as he was facing severe financial problems. After doctors told him about the cost of the surgery to be performed on his son, Limbaiah decided to end his life. The amount he had brought from Nizamabad towards medical expenses, he offered it in the temple and committed suicide.

Limbaiah owned a piece of land and had taken some more land under lease for cultivation. But due to lack of rains, the crops failed.

Meanwhile, two more farmers committed suicide unable to bear debt burden in Medak district.

Police said Chakali Srinivas (34) from Jangarai village ended his life by hanging himself to a tree. Srinivas has three acres of land and had drilled three bore well but they failed. ‘’For drilling he had taken a loan of `1.5 lakh and in addition to the loan for irrigation,’’ police said.
