MUZAFFARNAGAR: A 48-year-old farmer committed suicide by consuming poison at Sadhpur village in the district after he was unable to withdraw cash from the bank for his son's wedding.

Satish Kumar was rushed to hospital yesterday in a serious condition where he was declared dead.

His family said he had been worried about not being able to get cash for the wedding despite standing in long queues.

Meanwhile, the cash crunch triggered by demonetisation has prompted a man in Miranpur town in the district to drastically downsize his daughter's wedding ceremony. 

There were only four 'baraatis', besides the groom at the wedding. The guests also had to make do with a simple meal after the 'nikaah'.

Maqbool Ahmed was advised by his relatives to postpone the wedding, but went ahead with a humble ceremony.
