The farmer from Medak who committed suicide on Sunday had got a job as a security guard at an apartment in Begumpet on Wednesday. While police is yet to confirm the reason for Mallesh’s suicide, his family members have said that he was in debt and had abandoned farming recently.

According to the farmer’s son, whose name is also Mallesh, his father owed Rs 1.5 lakh to private lenders in his village. As he could not pay back the money, he had come to Hyderabad a week back to look for work. However, the security guard’s job he got paid a pittance.


On Saturday night, Mallesh climbed over the compound wall of the pump house with a rope. “He tied a noose to a tree and hanged himself. Later, a few Army men saw his body and alerted the police,” said Begumpet police sub inspector A. Ravinder. Mallesh’s wife Ms Susheela told police that he was distressed due to his debts.

Police also found that he had leased out a part of his land. “As per information from his village, he had given it on lease around a year back,” sad Begumpet police inspector G. Baswa Reddy.

Mallesh was living with his wife in the village, while his son and two daughters were living separately after their marriage. He had taken money from different private lenders over the last two years but had been unable to pay them back.


His body was handed over to his family after post-mortem. Police has booked a case under CrPC 174 and has started a probe.
