Nagpur: Apparently facing problems in repaying a loan, a 35-year-old farmer killed himself in Buldhana district of Maharashtra, a senior police officer said on Monday.

Gajanan Jaybhaye, a resident of Saukhedtejan village, left his home on Saturday night and went to his farm. He subsequently consumed poison and set himself ablaze after building his own pyre with woods and animal fodder kept in the farm, the police officer said.

The incident came to light on Sunday morning, he said.

An investigation was on, he added.
