SALEPUR: Agadhu Rout (63) of Sana Patasundarpur village under Govindpur police limits allegedly committed suicide by consuming pesticide on Sunday.

Sources said Rout had borrowed money from a moneylender by mortgaging his land as his old age pension was too meagre to run the family.

As Rout could not repay the loan, he took the extreme step.

He was rushed to SCB Medical College and Hospital at Cuttack where the doctors declared him brought dead. Panchayat Samiti member Jiaram Behera has demanded financial assistance for the family of the deceased.
