Farmer couple commit suicide
In yet another bizarre incident that sends shockwaves across the state, a farmer couple committed suicide in Barpeta district after poisoning their 2 children on Sunday. The incident took place in the Sarthebari area where caught in grim poverty the couple poisoned to death their children and then hanged themselves in the evening.
Local residents blamed poverty which forced them to take this extreme course of action. The incident took place a month after a poor farmer took the same course of action when flood waves ravaged his crops.
