Bhopal: A debt-ridden farmer in Madhya Pradesh has committed suicide by jumping in front of a speeding train, police said.

Worried over repayment of loans, Govind Singh, 50, a resident of Chhapri in Sagar district, jumped before the train on Tuesday.

Rajkumar, a family member, said Singh had taken a loan of around Rs 5 lakh from two banks. He was worried as he was frequently receiving the loan repayment notice.

A probe into the incident has been ordered. An official said family dispute could also be the reason behind Singh's extreme step.
