Bargarh Farmer Suicide: Locals Withdraw Road Blockade

Bargarh, Nov 2: The road blockade near Kalapani on NH-53 in Bargarh by locals demanding compensation for the kin of farmer Brunda Sahu who committed suicide on Wednesday, ended after the Bargarh district administration assured to provide financial assistance to the farmer's family.

The road blockade was withdrawn in wee hours today after the administration promised to allot four decimal farmland, a house under the Biju Pucca Yojana and provide Rs 42,000 to the family of Sahu, who ended his life yesterday by consuming poison as his crops were damaged by pests. He had set his crops afire on Tuesday.

Bargarh collector, sub-collector and legislator Debesh Acharya reached the spot and pacified the agitating locals who were staging the road blockade by placing dead body of the farmer.
